Just wanted to say hello to everyone. I've been struggling with CPRS 1(Chronic Regional Pain Syndrome) and spinal arthritis for the past 2 years or so. I would like to say it's nice to find a place where people can relate. :-)

Welcome Bliz. You have definitely found a place where we all know what struggles the other is going through. We're one big happy, hurting family! There are several other members with CRPS. Please stick around, post some more, and get to know us!

Welcome Blizzard! I have not been a memner here for long either but have to say I already have been made to feel at home and found alot of interesting topics and discussions here.
Hope to see alot of you here and maybe we can grow "old" here together.
Sorry for your pain levels and the one common denominator that looks to be required here to understand pain and that is certainly the case for me.

Thank you all for being so welcoming. It's just really good to know that someone understands what we all go through. Well I hope you all have a good day and I'm sure you'll be hearing a lot more from me in the future. tongue
