You are at the right place buddy. Here you don't have to pretend to be normal or justify yourself when you feel crappy. You can be who you are depending on how you feel. It might not sound like much, but it can make a huge difference. Like you, I am quite new here, but for some reason, I don't feel as alone anymore and it's truly great.
By the way, would you mind telling me (us) what you suffer from exacly. If you don't want to share it's fine too. Might just be useful in the future is you need some advive or info. about your condition.
I am Dany (frenchdude) and I live in Montréal, Canada. And oui, je parle français.
So welcome again.
Fairy Punk....Love the name. Why don't you tell us a little bit about your experience with Pain? Fill us in so we will know what kind of help you are looking for. Me? I have had 2 back surgeries, been in Chronic Pain since I was 19 or 20, I am now 42. Have had many many procedures, the last surgery was Lumbar Spinal fusion L5-S1 without Hardware. I just recently had EMG and MRI to see what changes have occurred since last surgery in 2003. It won't get any better for me just because it's degenerative. Possible Pain Pump and Neurostimulator in the near future. And I was just diagnosed with Type 2 Diabetes in March of this year..... Wow. That's enough about me....Now its your turn...........
