Hi...my name is Lonnie, I became a member of Spine-Health to have common friendship with others who suffer from Pain as I do. I look forward to chatting with you and the benefit that it will bring with the friendship of others who understand the tremendous hardship of living in Chronic Pain, as we try to move forward with our lives.

If there is ever anything that I can do for you then please just let me know. Please keep us posted as to how you are doing and other than that....jump right in and start reading some posts and checking out the site. You may also want to try the chat room , it is usually a lot of fun in there. Take care....Miki
  • I have followed some of the information on the site for quite some time. I have never been able to open up to others...who could never understand what you are going through. I do feel there are some folks on here that do understand. The past year has taken it's toll on me and I feel like I need to make some changes....this time of year is the worst for me with the new year. To think of the comming year it get's scarry in thinking how I'm going to make it through another one. It's always one day at a time for me....

    I plan to post a little more information on myself in the near future...with the hope that some of ya'll can help get me through this. I will know next week if I am excepted by a new Doctor at John Hopkins in Baltimore. I'll keep you posted.

    Thanks for your kind words..

  • I'm glad you found the site! It's been a great place for support for me especially for the deep dark times. I hope you get a consult with the Doctor soon. Take care. Charry
