    Hello it would be Lovely to hear from others with similar or same health conditions,but also to chat in general as I often like think there is so much more to me than health issues and although they do impact of every aspect of my life I know only too well there are a lot of other people with worse health conditions and so I count myself as very lucky as I can drive which is my life line and enables me to see family and friends which is very important and keeps me as independant as I possibly can be so be nice to hear how others manage their own long term chronic pain too and what hobbies they enjoy etc.

    Hello Ami awwww I like True Life Films definitely not love stories as I'm more True Life or film like The Green Mile with Tom Hanks and Jack Nicholson in One Flew Over Tne Cuckonest and Alcatraz also like Grease too what about you? Do you do any Hobbies? I do like going pool and doing my hydro pool exercises but it's some times a effort but I'm always glad when I'm there and in the warm water does make exercising much easier.Its lovely to be in touch and hope we can keep InTouchX
