I would also like to Welcome you to our forum, or shall I say "Family"! I am sorry that you have reasons to have to come here, but if since you have been coming here and reading our post, you can not help but know what a really great site this really is! Of course it is the kind, caring, and compassionate people here that make this forum what it is! I am glad that you decided to post, and introduce yourself, I do hope that you decide to stick around and become part of our family. You know this is just the place to come to vent your frustrations about CP, because when you do, you will alway find a compassionate ear, that is willing to listen and share in pain, when your here your definitely not alone! You now have friends that really do understand your pain and what you feel, and can empathize with you, as the saying goes "misery loves company" Well here you have plenty of company! There is power in numbers, so if we can not over come CP, maybe we can at least help surpress it a bit!
I wish you well and again Welcome to our forum!
