    Hi @Tj72 hope you are ok this evening and welcome to scope a great community, it's amazing isn't it that when illness enters by one door friends disappear out of the other, as @janer1967 says hope to see you around.
    Be extra nice to new members.

    Welcome to the community @Tj72. Chronic pain can feel isolating, I hope you are able to connect with others in a similar situation here. How are you feeling this morning? :)
