Hello Bob! I'm not sure if I missed your introduction, but I wanted to welcome you to the CP forum here. I think you and Straydog could share some stories about your pain pumps. Just slap me silly if you have already been introduced! :)
I really wanted to make sure you were introduced properly here.

Hi Bob,

I too want to welcome you to HW! We're always happy to see new members (although sad that the reason they are here is pain). You're probably already finding out what a wonderful place this is. The members are just fabulous. Everyone here understands what you are going through like no one else can & they truly care!

If you feel like it start an introduction thread, or post a little bit about yourself here. It is a nice way for us to get to know you & for you to get to know us. Also feel free to join us in our live chats on Thursday nights at 9 pm est in the chronic pain chat room.

I too would also like to extend a big hello from Kansas Bob. I do hope your stay with us is comfy and happy. You'll find that we complain sometimes when it hurts badly and support one another in those times as well as the happy moments when our pain has subsided enough to get something done or have had a great accomplishment. I do hope your pump is helping with your pain and that the amount of pain you are having is low.

Again welcome to the family and thanks for the reminder about CPers not getting much sleep. that was many weeks ago that it happened and I hadn't much sleep all night that night, which is pretty normal for me LOL.

I live to "Tame My Pain!"
