Hello to all of you I have met and have not yet had the opportunity to... I apologize for the lack of attention I have paid to you after the support and advice you have given me.  Work has kept me busy, but I have to give credit to my Doctors for delivering me to the point of fair contentment I am in at this point.  I am in no means a drug company pusher, but if you have nerve pain, ask your Doctor about Lyrica if you havent been on it yet....
Other than that, I have no other excuses other than guilt for feeling better... not normal, better... than I was when I 1st joined here.  I still have plenty of hours if not days that remind me of why I joined this wonderful group.  I do think of you often, and I do intend to make it my pre-New Years resolution to visit and chat with you more often!

Hi Nate!

I was wondering where you had disappeared to! It's great to 'see' you again. Chat is rolling along and busy as ever but we sure could use your humor and presence there. You take care and don't be such a stranger..K?

Hi N8, I am SO HAPPY to hear that you're feeling a little better! It seems like it is so rare for one of us to find significant relief. I'm so glad you were able to find it! As Susie said, it gives us hope!

  Hehe Hey Nate!

And sorry I could not travel both
And be one traveler, long I stood
