Adding a profile is optional. Some leave it blank. Some fill it in with a mini resume. Others just add an overview of their GBS/CIDP journey or condition. The choice is yours.

I think the best way to use this forum is for research. To do research, you have three main choices:
1. Browse the categories and topics listed in the forums, and then read the threads that look interesting to you.
2. Login, then “Search” for forum threads by keyword on the main forums page. Use the Search feature located just above the column titled “Freshness”, not the “search site” box in the upper right corner.
3. The other way is to pick a category and start a new thread to ask a question. I would use this approach if I could not find what I was looking for in the existing threads.

I often copy a keyword from a thread, open a new tab to the main forums page (or Google search) then paste and search. I sometimes have 5-10 tabs open at once as I bounce around doing research.

Hope you find info that helps you!
