     If you are new to this forum family then you may be wondering what kind of goofy question is that on a health care forum. idea   We all suffer with medical conditions and with most of us there is pain involved...sometimes a lot of pain. Or maybe you are the loved one of one of these persons. This forum is all about how we help and support each other, how we gain back more quality to our lives, and how we can learn and share what we gain along the way and hopefully make not only our lives better but the lives of others who come to join us.

     But we need to also remember that there is the other side of life...the side that isn't concentrated on illness and pain. That's why we started the daily Koffee Klatch. This is a time to laugh, reminisce, chit-chat about the silly things in our lives...all fun things and no pain. In fact the 'P' word is not allowed...  turn   So each day we share our thoughts or experiences on a different topic. Often it includes food, sometimes we talk about our past, and other times we just get goofy! Laughter is our goal. So, please join us whether this is your very first day on Healing Well or you're a seasoned veteran.
(Sure do miss you Chutz!!)
     One thing about pain that I find very positive is Healing Well. Do you feel that way too? It has changed my life in so many ways. The rewards, of the heart, are priceless. Friends, who truly accept me for who I am, are all right here at Healing Well. Healing Well is a blessing in my life, no doubt. Which brings me to todays question....
      How has Healing Well changed your life? What ways has Healing Well made a positive impact on your life?

HealinWell has made a very significant impact on my life for sure , when I came here I was a depressed insomniac , chronic pain sufferer who was unstable and at times suicidal . Right away I foung support and felt cared about , I found a fellow pain sufferer , insomniac , I can't tell you how many nites we were up on the phone consoleing each other and just keeping each other company . I met people of incredible courage who told me their stories with incredible generosity , and I learned about dealing with pain . I got invaluable advice that I still use as part of my life to deal with mt health challenges , like seeing a pain therapist . Also . I learned how to support and care for others , how fullfilling that is and I've made friends and started support relationships that are solidly part of my life and I hope always will be . There are folks here I call family and genuinely love dearly and always well. Yes HealinWell has been a very positive force in me being able to cope and move forward , I would and do reccommend it to people in need , Thank you HW , Thank you HW family . Mikel

I can not even begin to tell you how HW has changed my life! Chronic pain is lonely! Only people in pain can relate....many of our loved ones try and they mean well...but they will never understand! Everyone I have met here feels like family....(closer then family, because I don't like some of my family LOL) and they truly understand! It has also given me an opportunity to try and help someone else.....even if it is just to say I care and I understand! This fulfills the caretaker side in me.....something that my pain had pretty much taken away from me! I feel like I belong here and I am not alone......and not just completely crazy! At times I felt like I was just crazy....that this was not real but CP is real....and, thankfully, so are the people here! When I am feeling really bad, I come here for comfort and you find so many people that really do care! I don't always have to post and get responses....I can just read the responses to other posts and be thankful that I am a part of this group!! Anyway I love you all and could never tell you how thankful I am that my journey led me here!

Ditto what AntB said. This place has meant the world to me. Chronic pain is a long, tough and lonely journey. I know I can come here and get support, never be judged and have others really understand what i am saying. You all get my pain. You all listen to me with such caring hearts. It amazes me so!!! I am in awe of all the people here. Many, many of you are worse off than I am, and I see you continue on in life. You often motivate me, even if it's a little thing. Small is big to us. I also try to come and comfort others here. It is the nurse in me coming out. I am a giver and therefore if i can comfort someone else I feel like I have done a good thing, something important. As many days i lie in bed and can't get out, I feel worthless at times. i use to look after everyone, everyone i tell. And now the role is reversed. So now, if i can put a smile on someone's face, it means a lot to me. I have made some very special friendships here. Talking at all hours of the day. Looking for support and ALWAYS receiving that and more.
YES this place is important to me. Everyday it is my place to come to.
I pray for everyone here, that our pain can be just a little bit less, that we can accomplish one little thing each day, that we can find happiness in our lives of chronic pain. We can do and we will do it. We will stay together and help each other. Amen!!
