Why do you come to these forums and What do you expect



  • I found SH when looking for drug information. What I found was much appreciated information, support from others who were having pain just like me, and advice and understanding.

    It made me feel better to realize that I am not alone in my pain, that there are other people who understand what I am going through.

    I appreciate finding out about different possibilities (procedures, medications, exercises, etc.), things that have helped others and may help me. To be able to find out what to expect from procedures or medications, to hear what other's experiences have been. And I've learned that everyone is different, and it helps to hear a range of experiences.

    I joined when I read posts asking questions where I felt I could provide my experience as a source of information for others. And realized that there were questions I had that people here might be able to answer.

    SH is a great site, with a lot of wonderful people, willing to share of themselves, and offer understanding and support to other spineys needing help. I am grateful for the site, and happy to be able to contribute in my small way.
