Hi Heather Lynn
Welcome to our Chronic Pain forum, I am glad you finally decided to post here. I think you will be right at home, sound like you have had allot going on over the years, and you have had more than your share of pain! Well as they say misery loves company and I think you will find all the company you will ever want right here on this forum. We all know what it is like to suffer from chronic pain, so we not only can sympathize with you, but even more importantly we can empathize with you. Personally there is something comforting about sharing your pain and frustrations with others that really do understand what you are experiencing and going through! Share as much as you are comfortable with, but know that we are always here for you, to give you our ears and listen, and support you in any way we can. You are not alone when you are here on this forum!
Again I Welcome You, and hope that you will become an active part of our family here on the Chronic Pain Forum
