You are so right! When I was first Invited and introduced to Healing Well by Chutzie, I was is in the very early stages of what turned out to be a rather nasty and unpleasant divorce, I had some major pain issues that I had been trying to deal with, and then add to it the stress of the divorce, and then being alone too! As with so many people suffering with chronic pain I had made the mistake of isolating myself, and most of my friends were friends and family of my spouse. So with the divorce I lost allot more than just my wife!, I felt litterally alone. The folks here on this chronic pain forum were so welcoming to me, the caring compassion was such a welcome change for me, I truely felt I had found a family, I still feel that way today! When I Welcome Newbies to this forum and tell them that I think there are some of the best, and most caring and compassionate people here that you can find anywhere I really mean that! People here really are the BEST! ! And most everyone that comes here fits right in, and are just part of the family! I don't know, but maybe it is the fact that we have that one thing, in common, that we all share in,, "Chronic Pain" and maybe that has shaped us into who we are now! What ever it is, I do think that the people here are the Best!!!!. Monty's Mom I share with you in your thoughts and feeling about this site!
