Gordon a few people become members as you can see there is over 700, not all of these people have joined into the forum as of yet. Give them time they may not be ready to participate, also it gives them greater access to the website for self help and they can receive updates on the latest news in dealing with chronic pain by email, something you can't do if not a member, just by joining they are supporting the cause of all chronic pain sufferers.

Morning Gordon.

Gordon, you will find the "Introduce Yourself Here" thread up the top of the "General Discussions" category. It is permanently pinned to the top and is shaded in Yellow, so that new members should hopefully see it better.

As far as new members are concerned, Don has pretty much covered it!

So do all who live to see such times. But that is not for them to decide. All we have to decide, is what to do with the time that is given to us. (Gandalf the Grey)

Hi everyone its peppa here

if its okay, i,d like to join in as well,

maybe some people are shy and just float around in the background( so to Speak),
because
they are not always comfortable speaking about themselves?

i,m sorry, because i read the main sections when i joined, but never actually posted anything about myself ;
in the introduce yourself section

I,m guilty,
because i just joined up and started to try and participate, because i was just so wrapped that
this place existed and so many other people heard, but didn,t judge you

this place really is amazing,
but i,m sorry if i didn,t post in the introduce yourself section

hope everyones day is filled with luv, support and understanding

warmest regards peppa

Hi Everyone,
I am keeping a record of my own pain levels, and barometric pressure, so I thought I would give you all an update.
The weather here has been coolish around 10-20 degrees, and My pain has skyrocketed, and my mood matches the weather.
The interesting thing is the barometric pressure has reached 1,018 mb's, highest I have seen here for a while, early days, and I will keep posting the results. I would appreciate it if as many of you as possible could also keep track and post me with your observations. If you don't have a barometer, you can check out the readings for your area on:

If nothing else this wil be another diversion for us

All the Best

Gordon I did the same early on in my pain journey, a lot of people thought I was nuts how can the change in weather affect your pain, even some doctors use to give me funny looks when I mentioned weather and pain.
There has been a lot of material on the Internet which collaborates what we know does happen, a sudden drop in temperature increases pain and in places like Victoria this can happen through out the day especially around the coast, I use to live there and we would joke 4 seasons in one day, our youngest son wants us to move back there so he can look after us, but every time we go over to visit pain levels sky rocket. I would love to move to a warmer climate where the weather doesn't change that much but can't convince my wife, she hates the heat.
