    Once you login for a while and get to understand the way the forums are put together and meet a few people, that is when you really can appreciate it.

    I've always said this and will continue to say it.
    The members make this place so unique.

    Cathie, I appreciate your post and would just like to use you as an example.

    - Almost a year ago, I didnt know who Cath111 was

    - Then I started reading her posts and saw not only how much information she could provide but it was her compassion for others that was so clear and made her special.

    - As time went on Cathie and I got to know each other.. To the extent you can on online forums. And we had this immediate respect for one another and have always tried to be there when the time was needed.

    This scenario happens so often here and it does provide the 'strength' that Spine-Health has and why it is so unique from other sites.

    The common bond that so many people have here overcomes many times the most difficult obstacles... Be it medical,
    social, humor , or even just using the computer.

    Thanks again Cathie for your post. Its people like you that make the difference here

  • You are such a positive person. I always enjoy reading your upbeat messages. SH is lucky to have you

  • I agree with Ron, it's the people that make the forum Cathie, what would I do without you and everyone else?

    Oh, did you make it out to the range yet? I had less than 6 inches of snow today up north, maybe you could go hit a bucket or two? :)

    P.S. Here's a little something to help you out today:
  • Hi you fellow spineys and thanks so much for the kind words. What a great family!

    Ron, all I can say is "touche". You know what I mean. :)

    Jay, I've been having some pain issues and haven't felt that I should hit the links just yet. I'm really going to try and get out there this week.

    And Donna, thank you so much. I enjoy reading your posts and know that you've made some fast friends here.

    All we can do is just support each other and that is more important than some people know.

  • Wally is precious!

    I am thrilled for you and your hubby and welcome your new addition.

    Yay, yay, yay... what a happy day!

    You are a beautiful person... both inside and out, Cath. Thank you for always being "real".

    Much love... >:D<

  • I forgot to say thanks for the web link. I've seen it before but only had it on my work computer. Now you've made it possible for me to have it at home, too!

    Thanks again, my friend.
  • hi! :H it is always nice to see you welcoming newcomers!! :D you are such a joyful person!! :D Jenny :)
