Life is about health, family and friends, but sometimes its hard to keep focus on what is most important
I live in the northeast and suffer from seasonal depression. I basically hibernate from november until april. Besides moving, I’d really like to talk to people about how they’ve conquered their depression. I’m a really cynical person and depression has got me beat
I have Arnold Chiari II with an 18mm herniation. I had a posterior fossa decompresson on June 28th 2006 and still have a lot of pain related.
I received your email announcing your site . I have Chiari and syringomyelia
I had decompression surgery in February 2006 for Chiari I Malformation, 10mm. I am still experiencing issues and probably will for the rest of my life. It has always helped having support from others that are going through the same things you are.
