Welcome to our Family! I am so sorry to hear of your accident and the injuries that have now caused you chronic pain! Everyone here UNDERSTANDS, supports and always has a kind word of advice or hug just when you think you can't go on!
We are here for you and look forward to reading your future posts!
Bandit was the name of my most favorite dog. I was raised with shepherds and have two now, but my favorite dog ever was a cocker spaniel named Bandit. He just stole my heart and I never quite completely got over losing him.
Anyway, Bandit, I welcome you to the forum and am so glad you found us. Like the others have voiced, we are more like a family here and everyone is great with support, advice and just listening sometimes. We really look out for one another. Glad you joined. Keep posting so we can get to know you.
Gentle Hugs and God bless.
Thank you all so much for your lovely warm welcome!
I can see I've definitely come to the right place! It brought tears to my eyes just reading those responses because it's so clear that I'm finally talking to people who understand. I didn't realise how much of a relief that would be. I think the isolation is one of the worst things about chronic pain, because your mind's still as active and social as ever, but your body just can't do it, so you end up sitting in as corner by yourself.
I'm really looking forward to having a place to chat, people I know can support me, and being able to offer support to others where I can.
