      I wanted to say hi to everyone. I am sorry I have not been around, but I have been having a
      hard time of things, much like everyone here. The depression is tough to get thru and my
       headaches remain bad to severe. I think of you all quite often and hope that you are
       having just a little less pain. I have been reading as I can to try and keep up with
        everyone. Also having laptop problems at the moment.
       Thank you for being a bright light in my life and for always understanding and supporting me.
  God Bless

Suzane...I am really sorry to hear you are having some bad times...I am sending you some really big, but gentle hugs (( ))

I don't know about you...but I hate it if I am having computer or tv issues...those are my support and entertainment to help keep my mind off my pain!

We are always here to support you as well as I hope that you have a therapist or counselor to go and speak with if you feel it's needed for your depression...It really is hard some times living with chronic pain...

Hope you can get some rest tonight:)

Just a quick note to let you know I care... and that I'm sorry that you are having a hard time w/ everything.  I wish I had answers for you.... or something that would help you.  It seems like - with as many advances that there are out there - there would be *something* that could give you some level of relief.  It's just not fair.
I'm exhausted right now.... so I'm going to have to cut this short for now.  But please know I'm thinking of you - and I wish you well....
Love --Tina

Suzane, I know we have not really been able to reach out to eachother much as I am still new here. Please know that I am thinking of you, and always here if you need to chat or vent. Always wish I could do more, or wave a magic wand to make all of our pain go away.

Try and keep positive thoughts in your head the best you can.

Hi Suzane I sure do wish I could do something to lessen your pain. It does look like they could find something to help those headaches. Keep using the ice, and keep the hope that they will find something soon that will help.

I'm here for you here or thru email, messenger. I just can't imagine.

You take care sweetie. I'll be thinking about you and praying for you. Bless your heart. It just isn't fair.

The depression: I also hope you have someone you can talk to.

love and lots of soft hugs
