Hi I've just signed up to use the pain form for my rheumy and looking through the posts it's good to see such great support and understanding online which is some times hard to get from family and friends or for them to fully understand what your going through at times it's good to be able to chat others that understand, even though it's sad that you being on here means you suffer aswell :( A little about me I have ankylosing spondylitis, fibromyalgia,gerd, anxiety,ibs,and osteoarthritis ( lucky I'm not a horse ;) lol I miss the old me but like everyone else doing the best I can with the current me :) I am hoping this community gives me sanity in times when needed.... Hope you are having a pain free day, gentle hugs :)
Welcome Coopz6! You are correct on everything you wrote about this community. And yes, it's very sad that our common connection is because of pain. you will find the support you need here. Have a blessed day, as much as possible. And I'll add you to my prayers. 🙏🌼
Welcome to our community family Coopz6!!! You definitely came to a good place. This group has been a Godsend to me and I have made some wonderful friends here!! I laughed when you said it's a good thing you're not a horse (I'd have been shot a long time ago... LOL!!!) I miss my old life with my horses and going for a lazy Sunday morning ride through the park. Pain won't allow me to do it any more. Know that what you said is very true... We DO understand because we live it as well. I will keep you in my prayers and again, welcome. I hope you find the support you need here. I know I did.

Coopz6 Welcome to our family there are a lot of compassionate people here who will listen and try and help you. There is always someone here to talk to, and you can rant and rave all you need to ,there is no judgment we have all been there bought the shirt and wore it. We will probably need to do it again at times in our lives. Will keep you in my prayers.
