I have been away from this site...couple years I think. I needed some intense therapy for my depression and not knowing how to explain...I withdrew....even from you guys.
As I rejoined, the list of my ailments popped up so I believe those explanations will be there once I post.

Oh....and my depression is more than just stable as I've never felt better in my life!

Presently, I feel the need to focus on my fibromyalgia. And so I'll jump to that section next. :)

Re' meds....I am on antidepressants and fentynal patches and have been for years. Also, meds for my blood vessels as I've had 2 heart attacks and couple strokes and still occasional TIA s and falling.

With my aphasia and difficulty understanding the written word also....I will be taking my time reading and posting so I understand and able to post in way to be understood.

Thanks for this site and all info and support offered here. :)

It seems you need to hit on my name......Savage....for my medical history. Thanks

    members who have been absent for a while.

    Savage, for you, perhaps a bit special for me, since I've followed you when you where on Spine-Health for a time, then going through some rough times, then being absent.

    So, seeing you back online is a treat to me. Not that you are back online, because, as we all know when people return, there are generally some medical problems associated with their return. So, I welcome you back and I am very happy about seeing you again, but I am not happy in knowing that you have problems, new or previous that have brought you back here.

    I only hope that we can continue to provide a level of help that you need.

    This may sound very strange, but after knowing you have come back....My first thought was Welcome home. I am saying that because dialogues with you have always been good and not just about medical problems. But saying home, almost applies, that as spinneys, this is our place, where we come because we don't have many other places to go.

    We all have places to go, families that love us.. This world, our Spiney world is a place we can come to , to be around friends, those that understand what we are going through. So , from that point of view, we welcome you back with open arms.

    The warm welcome! I am very glad to be back and especially your kind words of remembering me. With the aloneness in my pain and other stuff.... It so nice to be remembered. I feel like Norm from "Cheers" !
