this is my second post in the new member section. i received no response or support to my first post. i am grateful for the site... i read others experiences which help me. i was hoping to share my own chronic pain journey and was looking forward to support. i didn't get that for myself, but it hasn't stooped me from reading the posts and viewing others journeys it gives me strength.

link to members original introduction posts... i will close the other threads to keep any responses together

    Sorry you are feeling discouraged. I tried to look up your original post. Seems to be from beginning of 2014.?
    If so, you are a vey patient person. :)

    To me, it seemed Liz responded with how to navigate the site.

    Can you maybe give a little more info about your situation? More information may help more of us to relate and respond, esp if you have question or specifics of your main focus.

    I look forward to hearing more from you! and I'll be looking on "view my posts" to better able to keep up with communications.

  • I am fairly new here but would like to hear about your injuries and symptoms and treatment. I have found lots of support here and I am happy you are finding it helpful, too.

  • I am new to the site and missed your original post but Im glad you kept coming here and reading, asking for support. Living with chronic pain and dealing with the progression of your spine deteriorating is something I understand and can relate to. As can sooooooo many others on this site. Ive been dealing with disc issues from an early age. Had my first surgery at 23yr. Lamectomy L5-S1, this process or rollercoaster as some call it has continued on til present day. 5 surgeries in total. (Lamectomy, Microdisectomy, Fusion, SCS Implant, then removed SCS and all Fusion hardware) last one was little over 3yrs ago. If only the story stopped there....

    I have alot of sleepless nights these days so if you ever need to vent or some support message me. ☺
