Hi, My name is Jill. I just signed up and from what I have read..I am impressed and do not feel so alone now. I have read some of the forums, have read about all the pain everyone experiences and even though my heart goes out to all who suffer. I know that I can, and will be, of great support to anyone who cares to contact me.
I suffer from chronic pain in my lower back, hip and legs.
I have been diagnosed with many different conditions, including degenerative disc disease, osteoporosis, broke my back twice and much more.
I know I am far from alone when I say that chronic pain can cause depression. Who could not feel some depression when every single day, practially every moment, we are trying to deal with pain, in one way or the other.
Then there's all the medications we take which can lead to even more depression. It goes on and on.
I wish better days for everyone here and am looking forward to hearing from you.
PS. I hope I am doing this right ( inserting my message)
