    I have FMS,CFS, Peripheral Neuropathy,Obstructive Sleep Apnea (am on a CPAP Machine)OsteoArthritis,Depression, Severe Allergies,Asthma, Degenerative Disk Disease,,,etc,,,etc...lol,,,the list goes on and on,,,,

    I am a former healthcare worker. I have been on disabilty for 5 1/2 years. I am now 49 years old. I have learned to manage my illness instead of it managing me!(Most days anyway,,,lol)

    Have a great day,,,painfree as possible!

    Welcome. You do have a lot to cope with. I'm sure you will find caring support here as well as lots of info. There are many former health care workers here. I'm a former nursing teacher, now on disability.

    ... to the board. I still feel new myself. You mentioned your name is a combination of your name & your 'bear' collecting. Mine is made up of my cat's name, caper, and mine kathy.

    my name is Rock and I collect gors. Haha


    Actually it's two names put together. Rockne and Gordon. I don't know if the computer did it or the server. Maybe Gordon did it.

    In any case Rockgor smells as sweet as Gorrock, I suppose.

    Collections are always fun. Or to put it another way, most collectors are crazy. I read in the paper about a farmer in Minnesota who collects old machinery and buildings.

    You know, an old one-room schoolhouse, a 90 year old tractor, etc. You'd have to own a farm to be able to keep a collection like that.
