I too want to Welcome you to Healing Well Chronic Pain Forum, I read up on your condition, ( Thanks for the link Chutzie!) I must admit it makes me cringe just thinking about how painful that must be for you! Well we might not be able to fix you up, but we sure can listen to you and of course give you our compassionate, caring support! I think that you will find, that although we all have different conditions and different types of pain, we all still live in chronic pain, and we do understand what it is like for you to have to live with CP all the time! When you come here you are no longer alone with your pain, you are among friends, who can truely empathize with what you are having to endure! So when you are frustrated, and feel over whelmed with your pain, please come here and vent your frustrations, there is usually always someone here that listen attentively and will share in your burden and hopefully lighten your load that your CP puts on you. Again I Welcome you to our CP family!
I do wish YOU well!!
