Hi Everybody : )
 
Most of you probably don't know me - I am Susan and I am a Co-Moderator on the Chronic Pain forum.  A little about me:  I used to work as an RN.  I am 44, recently married a wonderful man and have 2 wonderful kids: 16yo daughter and a 13 yo son.  Plus, we can't forget my two cats and the family dog : )
 
Anyway, I have LPHS or Loin Pain Hematuria Syndrome which is a chronic kidney disease that causes severe kidney pain on a daily basis.  I am waiting for the go-ahead to replace my pain pump which got infected in Jan 05 and had to be removed.  So, life for the moment, is a bit more painful than I would like!
 
I recently became a Mod in Chronic Pain and I absolutely love it!  As you all know, there is quite a bit of cross-over between some of the forums.  I am sure many of you are experiencing some form of chronic pain.  With that in mind, Teri has asked that I post letting you know about our Tuesday PM chats which run from 6pm PST to 7:30pm PST every Tuesday.  This week's chat is entitled: Chronic Pain/Illness and Its Impact on Our Significant Relationships.  If that sounds interesting to you, I hope to see you there!!!  Let me know if you have questions : )

Pay It Forward : )

Remember this chat is tonight!!  Try and make one of these, they are loaded with info, you meet some very nice people, and we just share thoughts with others.  So while offering support to one another across the boards, you also learn something that could be useful along the way...Hugs, Teri tongue

"It seems that everyone always has a lot of questions about medications.  They want to know if other people have tried a certain medication and if so, what their response was.  They want to compare side effects of a medication.  They want to talk about a particular medication as compared to other medications in the same class.  The list goes on and on.  So, this Tuesday's chat is going to be an opportunity for people to bring any questions about medications that they would like to address the group with (remember, the input that you get will NOT be medical advice - it will simply be peer to peer discussion).  It will also be an opportunity for people to share anything they would like with regards to their experiences with medications: how well they have worked, side effects, etc.
 
With all of that in mind, chat is scheduled as follows:
 
Tuesday, July 12th @ 6pm PST (9pm EST)
In Chronic Pain chatroom
Topic: Medications: The Pros & the Cons"
