in4thewinHello...so sorry that you are here. Or rather that you have to be here...WOW!! Having such pain at such a young age is horrible... I truly hope that you don't have it for along time. But you have your age as a plus... I'm 42, so I don't heal as quickly or as easily as you would. Just know that we are here for you whenever you need us.
