Because of a congenital defect I have a condition that includes chronic pain. I feel fortunate that I have found a group that is comprised of people who share, collectively anyway, all of the same symptoms as myself. Until now, I thought support groups were great but that I knew that I would never need one.. I was wrong and I will not think so lightly of them again. Consider supporting groups that care about any issue that is near to your heart.
Supporting a group can be monetary but it also means contributing to it with your thoughts and opinions. The anonymity of the net gives everyone the latitude to stay as far away or as close to people or issues as is comfortable for them.
Atleast it allows a forum where any idea or emotion can be expressed. I have been angry, sad and once, yes I can say it, happy! It isn’t how much you say and, apparently, not about the quality of what u you say but rather it is about the fact that you say SOMETHING.
Another thing is that when I read through posts, some I read throughly and others not so much. I gleen what I need from each one, just as I do when reading books. I started blogging because my brother has for some time. I am not a poet, nor do I write eloquently. Generally speaking I write what is on my mind and then I am out. Everyone has their own needs and styles. That is what writing here is all about.
