  • HCM'ers in So. Nevada??

    Hello:

    I'll try another thread. Any HCM'ers in Southern Nevada that want to hook up, please send a message through the HCMA mail system to "Bucky". It's lonely being the only one in Vegas in HCMA.

    Doug,

    Sorry no one has responded yet.. you might want to send a PM to Eilleen 2345, she lives in Phoenix. You could probably search through the member list and find some others out there.

    Come on out you Nevada people, Doug wants to meet others who have HCM and are in his geopgraphy.
    Hang in there Doug some people here( out there) do not get on the message board regularly.

      Thanks Pam.....I think people are afraid of people who live in Sin City........we are...........DIFFERENT !!!!!!

      Not actually, did you know that Las Vegas has more churches per capita than most other major cities (I guess that means we need them, huh), that our population has just passed 2 Million (not all of us gamble either), and that our proud University of Nevada, Las Vegas (UNLV) basketball team is going to be in the final 16 in March....

      Just some Trivia.

      Come see us.

          HI!
          I have a 15 year old son with HCM and we visit Las Vegas often because we have family and business in LV. My parents grew up in Las Vegas, matter of fact they met in high school there and they are still together. Things have changed in LV, but not too scary. Don't feel alone in LV with HCM, remember that some people don't want to talk about HCM, and so many don't even know they are living with it. Do you have a My Space account? Maybe you could help "get the word out" that way. Just ask HCMA how.
          My son Brody doesn't like to talk about his HCM ... not at all, but maybe we can meet when we go back to LV? When we go we stay with my friends in Spanish Trail, or she gets us a room at random hotels.
          Take care and good luck locating others in LV they will show up. Some people don't sign on to the HCMA but once in a while.
          Take Care,

            Thanks Ruth Ann. All roads lead to Las Vegas (where did I read that). Let me know when you are coming here I'd love to hook up.

            Strangely enough, I was talking to my neighbor yesterday and her nephew in South Carolina has HCM also.....I think you are right. Many folks who have this condition probably choose to either ignore it (if they can) or deny it (I would prefer this route).

            Take care..
