What I am trying to do

I understand that many of my posts and replies may seem harsh end uncaring. And there are plenty of posts that I open my heart to.
I have to say that because of the time that I have spent in chronic pain and going over so many different spinal conditions, tht I am trying to shed truth and awareness to so many situations.
I understand that people are frustrated and they are hurting.
I am in that same situation myself.
Over a period of time, I realized that medicine and doctors where going to do just so much to help me. And they did a very good job. But so much really depends on what I do and how I move on.
So, I will apologize to everyone that when I appear abrupt and not understanding, it is because I do. But that doesn't change the way I approach things/
I would love nothing better to see everyone better and not suffering pain.. Then I could continue to host a web site that would have discussions about the better things in life.
However, until we get to that point, I will continue to do what I have been doing. I am sorry if my approach hurts someone or make them angry. That is never my intention.
Dealing with chronic pain is no picnic, and I only hope that members can see what I am trying to do.
I am so lucky to have Spine-Health with me and I am even more lucky that I can 'talk' to so many different folks here.
Thank you for allowing me to be me... And when I offend, I sm aorry

  • Dear PapaRon-have you growled at somebody? I am pretty new to this site and it and you have become very special in my life. From factual information to the support of yourself and others, we can become empowered to have control over different aspects of our conditions. As you yourself have been living with "spiney" issues you still give of yourself when perhaps you could do with some support yourself. It is good to challenge our brains on issues different to our own and sometimes we to can benefit. I am so grateful to find this site. If you raise issues that are not always positive it creates reaction, discussion, communication-just like in the "real-world" and we all want to included in that.
    In my limited time at this site I think you are "awesome".
    Hugs n' Loves
  • ...well, you know how I feel. I'll leave it at that.

    Thank You for letting ME be me,Ron
