Got room for another "big ball of pain"?
Hope this won't be too long. I have a ton of issues...arthritis, steel rods everywhere from the waist down, fibro, depression, and the list goes on.
I was Dx'd in 2001 and joined a support board "international friends" started and ran by a wonderful, dear friend from Norway, Mosken Bergh. Last April this angel passed from ovarian cancer, and a few months later the board was closed. Many of us knew us for more than 20 years. We tried to make another group on FB but it was a failure...
Friends board was my lifeline...literally. Now I find myself isolating and being very lonely...not to mention hurting constantly.
I am looking for a new "home"...could this be it??
