I just wanted to say THANK YOU to alllllllllll of you guys. I had been researching and reading up and whatnot for a year and a half before I finally found this site. I've seen other message boards and forums but nothing quite stuck. I actually told my Neurosurgeon about this board :) You guys are AMAZING. There is absolutely NOTHING more comforting than hearing from you guys. The experiences, the advice, the opinions, the laughs. Everything. It is by far the most helpful thing I've found this entire time. I feel like I've struck gold.

I really, honestly want you to know that I appreciate you guys sooooooo very, very much. More than I can say. I am forever grateful to you all.. Just for being who you are. Even through bickering or disagreements, lol. All families have some rough patches, right? But it doesn't change anything. You are all special and you are all important.

Just know you have made such a difference in my life.

And I loooooooooooooove you guys<3333333

BTW, if anyone ever wants to chat, and has AOL or AIM or what have you, my screen name is metalchic16


Hope everybody is having as great a day as I am !

  • Glad to hear that this forum and our members have helped you so much. It was he same for me 19 months ago when i was a week out from my fusion and was really down in the dumps - then I found this place :)

    All the best to you Lo, and keep posting with your progress... Bruce

    (PS, so what kind of metal are you into? My boy is into thrash, black and death - has his own band)
    Keep positive!

  • Thank youuuuuu. I think about you a lot and it makes me happy because I know you are doing so well! You did so well before surgery, right after surgery, and now. Amazing :) You deserve it!
