  • I finally mad eit thru the FAQ's..thanks Holli..very helpful..but now have no computer unless I go to the library...which is good for me to get out and stop isolating..again..thanks for the warm wishes, smiles, hugs..I felt all of them..
  • I can totally relate to you. I remember constanly praying to God to take me because the pain had gotten so bad. Laying down was the only thing that provided some type of relief and even then it wasnt much. Constantly tossing and turning. It can drive you crazy. Belinda, I want you to know that YOU ARE NOT ALONE! There are people on here that can relate and care about you. This is one of the most friendly websites I have ever been on. There are alot of non judgmental people on here. Please come on here often just to vent. We do the same. Sometimes that is all we have. Take note in how fast technology is advanceing. I have a feeling a breakthrough is just around the corner for both you and I.
    Take care of yourself.
