        Thanks, Jo_ a lot of physical-related things are going on with me. These include the fibromyalgia and neurothopy getting worse and that prevents me from turning out a more-quality hub. I cant focus and fight pain at the same time. This was just my way of teling all of my followers that I AM trying to do better.

          I know what you mean. I have the same thing because of all the writing and crocheting I did last year. I sold 50 blankets. So, if I could sit long enough, I would like to do this again. The typing doesn't seem to affect the shoulder much. Now, it is a matter of the carpel tunnel, I am waiting for the doctor to tell me I am getting. My spine looks like a pretzel. Heating pad helps!   I have used green tea and occasionally a half a glass of white wine. I drink it slowly. I spread it out over three hours, just enjoy and meditate.
          My biggest relief is to stretch as tolerated with deep breathing and meditation while stretching, “my personal version of yoga”. :  )
          I hope these ideas help. Shalom 

            Jo, yes, your ideas are fantastic. I am just fighting with my body most of the time, and since fall has arrived, the nip in the air touches my bones and nerves to the point that they ache all of the time. I guess, like you and all hubbers, I am seeking "THE HUB," the ONE hub that all of my followers will love and even the non-followers on Hubs will like. Thanks again for your concern.

      WOW! What if 100,000 hubbers did this? Just curious... What made all your hubs suddenly descend into the pit of mediocrity?

        I never said that my hubs were mediocre. I just feel that I need to push myself more when I view my hubs through my follower's eyes.

    Hi Kenneth.  Your apology is accepted, no question.  But, it is not required at all!  I have enjoyed your many interesting and witty hubs.  I found some of them quite extraordinary.  And some of them make me laugh out loud!  You are very effective in bringing out humor, sadness and frustration.  Your writing is such that I know when seeing a hub with your name on it, I will really enjoy it.  Don't ever give up.  Write your way through it.

    Your fan and hubber friend, Marilyn (Maralexa)

      Marilyn, thank you, dear friend, for your encouraging words. I needed them right now. I am going to a local chiropractor this afternoon and get rid of this stabbing pain in my lower back. I think that with my fibromyalgia and neurothpy already attacking me that back trouble would be a cake walk. NOT. Its tough. Keep me in your thoughts.
      YOUR fan and Friend, KENNETH

    Hi Kenneth,  no need to apologize.  As writers, we are pressured to work around personal life and other obligations that keep us from doing our best at times.  I have at times posted hubs, although striving to do the best, feel they were not up to my high personal standards. I am sure that you can relate to this.  I have not noticed anything out of place in your corner of the world, Kenneth.  Just keep writing, stay focused and continue on.

      thanks teaches!  Your words are not only encouraging, but supportive. God bless you, and all of my followers, for being in my life. May you all be rewarded greatly.

    Has anyone told you that you’re not Top Notch Quality in the past few weeks? I have never told you so  as your follower. In fact this hub, “Easy Ways to Deal With "Bad Situations" was superb. You do not have to apologize till you get a feedback from followers of not being top Notch quality.

      Hi, Nyamache,
      Not lately, LOL, but thank you for your sweet, sweet words. I find that apologizing to such a special group of people, my followers, is my way of saying that I can do better. Thanks, DEAR friend and follower of mine.

    Kenneth no matter what no apologies needed ever. I have enjoyed your hubs really. If you seem to think something is as it shouldn't be think about what is missing. That missing link may be just something that is bothering you and you can't quite put your finger on it. Anyway you are doing just fine. I always worry myself when it's time to push that publish button but I figure that I have put my all in a certain hub if it falls short of expectations I'll just keep on trying. It's the most any of us can do. Hugs from this side of the world.

      Gypsy: Pardon the boldness, but you are a doll to say this to me. I appreciate YOU and all of my followers who keep me "up" and able to cope with my physical pain as well as mental. Thanks for being in my life.

    This is completely in the wrong forum.

    Messages to followers are best placed on your feed, not on a forum, and especially not an an official Hubpages help forum.

    Most hubbers do not use the forums.

      Yes, it's a personal message to followers, not an official announcement of any sort.  I will request it's moved to another forum topic.

        One can actually post this sort of thing as a status update that appears on your feed like IzzyM stated, so it doesn't even need to be in the forums.

    No pressure KA smile take your time and work at your own pace. I don't seek, expect nor strive for perfection in myself or others. No need to apologize. Hope you feel better soon.
