I know that when I sign up for any online forum group, I do it to hopefully get answers to so of my questions or to learn more about what I am after.
When you first registered for Spine-Health, what did you want to see? What was your expectations, what were you thoughts?
I initially registered at Spine-Health responding to a survey question that Spine-Health's CEO presented (Stephanie)
Prior to that, I had been using Spine-Health site as a resource into getting information regarding my thoracic problems. I never thought about the online forums
But after registering and reading posts, I saw what this site was all about. I slowly started to post and respond to other threads. I knew that based on my own situation, I could respond to most questions.
From there, I got to meet so many great people. I used to park myself in CHAT every night to get to know people better.
From there, my involvement grew. I was fortunate enough to actually visit the Spine-Health office in Chicago when I was on a mini-vacation. From that point on, Spine-Health became part of my daily activities.
My expectations were greatly exceeded. I was only looking for information to start with, but I gained so many 'spiney' friends, learned so much from others and for me to provide some insight to spinal problems was a plus.
Everyone joins an online forum for a reason.
What were yours?
