I have chronic pain, take many pain killers. i am looking for people who are in a similar situation to me. I feel very isolated at times even when I am among people, however people don’t understand. I am not looking for sympathy, just someone who can relate to me.    
Many thanks

    Hello Wendi @wendi248 and a warm welcome to the community. As Cockney Rebel said, many of our members will relate to what you have written and the 'Dealing with chronic pain' thread/category is here: https://community.scope.org.uk/categories/chronicpain
    Most of us have learned that it makes a huge difference to know that one is not alone, that there actually are people out there who begin to understand what we have been or are going through, that empathy is so much more important than sympathy. I am sure you will find what you are looking for among the many friends waiting here.
    Warmest best wishes to you,
