I followed the to and fro with Peter and if I can I’d like to tell you some of the things I’ve had happen whilst helping as a moderator I’ve lost a friend who got shafted by a doctor and couldn’t take any more I also copped flack for doing what a moderator should do and that’s justbe vigilant and prevent issues and promote good thoughts I sound bloody wish washy but if we can stay nice it makes life half bearable .
as long as I wake up alive I'm happy
Because it could be worse
Thanks for the message mate. I'm a bit perplexed about your reply but am willing to chat and explore the conversation further if that helps. I haven't been on the forum for a while but that doesn't mean I have any less respect for the people like yourself who moderate this forum and who are also living with chronic pain. I honestly cannot imagine the challenges that you must face trying to keep this portal going, it must be hard work at times. I'm sorry to hear about the loss of your friend and I can genuinely empathise with people who decide they cannot take it anymore. I never intended to be anything but nice in the questions I raised about topic censoring and since that first post I've made some incredible discoveries about living with persistent pain, managing pain, and about the consequences of how I communicate my own pain experience.
