Hey Everyone

Hey, I'm new here. I figured I would join being that I was recently diagnosed as having herniated discs following a car accident. I feel very out of place out in the real world because of the age gap between myself and the vast majority of other local patients I've met, so I'm hoping I can find someone around my age so I don't feel so alone in this.

I'm 23 years old, originally from Chicago but moved to Florida about 7-8 years ago. I'm going to school for graphic design, and hoping I can move to the west coast once I finish my degree to try and find work. I'm not really sure what else to put here haha... If anyone thinks of something they are curious about, just ask away I guess! :smiley:" alt=":smiley:" height="20" />

    You are not alone!
    While you are waiting for response from members with shared experiences, you may benefit from using search, upper right on page.
    With your concerns, you might want to search for those in their twenties...too young for this...as ideas to get you to younger folks comments and discussions.

    With search you may be led to current or older discussions.
    You may be led to medical side of site with articles and videos. Very informative!
