Harrison, you beat me to the punch.

What brings us to post and share on a regular basis is the pain and suffering that binds us together to search for answers, solutions, hope, understanding, and empathy from those that are in a similar state of body, mind, and spirit.

May we have grateful hearts for our lives as it is the journey and not the destination that keeps us going.

May we all have blessed journey's and solutions so that we can experience all the joys that life has to offer.

Happy Thanksgiving everyone . May we not eat so much food so as to damage our fragile spines.

Terry Newton

To Harrison and all other members:

Thanks for your support and sharing of your personal experiences. All of this truely helps those of us searching for answers.

I can't wait to get to a point in my recovery when I feel comfortable enough to spend more time on here to "give back" so that I can help others.
