Hi Everyone! I am a new member. I cannot believe how many people are dealing with the same pain and I have. It looks like talking to other people helps more than talking to doctors.

  • You may be right about that. It always makes me feel better to talk to others that are experiencing the same thing that I am. You have come to a great place for support and understanding. I will look forward to seeing you around.
