Not long ago Ron posted a S.H. Hall of fame. Simply meaning members who have stayed on the forums for a year or more.
I sometimes wonder what the reasons are. Because I'm sure there are many.
What brings us here is the searching for first hand knowledge of the many many unknowns. And there are many, I wish this site was here for my first 3 or 4 surgeries. Then the surgery itself or other minimally invasive therapies. And the recuperation, healing and if your lucky you and your teams success. Well during that time you'll make friends and form special bonds with some people that could last a long time after you no longer feel the need for S.H.
Those more than likely will move to another social site.
So I'd like to ask you what it is that keeps you comming back, or staying on S.H.
I'll go first:
I'm in chronic, lifetime pain, so that's a no brain er. And on this site i can find other people just like me. Now I wouldn't wish this on anyone. But it's nice to have a place to go where there are people just like me. That fully understand what I go through.
And as for depression, sometimes I think I get as good of advise o here as I do from my P.M. Psych.
And most importantly I feel I have a debt and a responsibility to give back. And try to be here for someone else. Even if I can do nothing more than give them a welcome. That's something.
