I'm not sure if this has been brought up or not, but I just wanted to suggest a section in the forums for spousal/caregiver support. I have noticed many spouses and family members of people in chronic pain joining spine health to look for answers on how to deal with their loved one when there is really nothing they can do.

I know my own significant other could use a place to vent about my pain and I'm sure there are others who would be willing to take part in the discussion. Just a place where they can share experiences and vent to one another about how they have a lot to deal with as well.

Thanks for your time.




  • Just from talking too a lot of you on SH. I think we can all say going through this crap we all deal with daily can be really hard on our mates.

    I know my wife Carol would love to have a outlet, where she can let off some steam, Kinda like most of use do on SH.

    My wife feels so helpless and she's not really one to talk about it with family of friends,that's just the way Carol is.

    I know lots of people have talked about this in the past.
    I really feel now is the time to make this forum happen.

    I couldn't imagine watching my wife or loved one going through all the crap we deal with daily.
    Sh I really feel strongly about having a special forum for our mates to connect with other people dealing with the same issues / feeling they are going through.

    I know I would want a place to vent / talk to other people dealing with this very same thing .It must be so hard on our families and loved ones.....they need a forum PLEASE!!!!
    Thank you very much.
  • I agree also, this would be a very good feature for this site. To be honest with you I'm not sure my wife would use this site, but its something that she should use. I can see it in her eyes and hear it in her tone how hard it is to be a good, loving wife, while dealing with all this crap that goes along with living with someone in pain.

    is to create a new Topic and one of the Major categories.
    This is the way most 'new' subjects get started. Then we can monitor the views and posts to determine if a separate forum would be necessary.

  • I can't see my husband there. He isn't too computer savy? He's never been on the computer. I also wouldn't want to see what I wrote about him. lol Charry
