Hello everyone
I've only just found this group.
I broke my back 6 years ago and had full spinal surgery.
I live in constant chronic pain and take a medley of medication.
I'm 44, married & got 2 sons aged 10 & 18.
I don't really join online groups and I always say I'm retired before I have to explain I'm disabled.
Hoping to join in with everyone on here
Mrs S

    Hello @Mrs_Syson and a warm welcome to the community. We're very glad to have you, though sorry, of course, for your difficulties and your pain. I hope we can find some way to be of help to you.
    One of the forums I most frequently direct new members to is 'Dealing with chronic pain'  If you have a look at some of the conversations and resources there I am sure it will bring you into contact with others who can relate to what you have been and are going through.
    We are all friends here, connected by disability, whether disabled ourselves or as parents, siblings and the like of disabled family members, and you will find yourself being made very welcome.. 
    Please feel absolutely free to ask any questions that occur to you, or to tell us any more about yourself, to chat or to rant and rave. We're here for you, and listening.
    Very warmest best wishes to you,
    Richard @JennysDad
