Knee pain?
Pain - 27 members
I woke up a couple weeks ago, and I had some pain in my right knee that made it hard for me to bend it. It escaladed to the point where if I straighten it or at least try to it kills me as well as bending it and putting pressure on it by kneeling on it. I have a past of rheumatoid arthritis but I don't know if this would have to do with my knee or it go on everyday for the past few weeks. A lot of forums say I tore my miniscus but I don't think a person can do that in their sleep.. Can someone please tell me what they think it might be?

LITIGATION STRESS SYNDROME
Mental/Emotional Health - 6 members
This is a relatively newly recognized condition. Due to the increasing number of legal actions, especially in the United States, this problem unfortunately will be encountered with increasing frequency. It occurs when a person is named in a lawsuit. A patient may typically report initial shock, dismay, and anger. This is often followed by depressive feelings, especially a feeling of paralysis and lack of power or control over her/his life. Hyperactivity, hyperacute senses and insomnia are common. There is often a feeling of abandonment and aloneness. Despondency can occur, often to the point of self-destructive behavior or even suicide. This is not talked about much but I can personally attest to its effects. Let us know if you are struggling with this as well.

What do you think about that?

A group that was recently formed stated that they want people with "strong opinions" but left the part out that you are not allowed to have a strong "opposing opinion". So, you're not free to talk openly and without judgement there. What do you think of talking about whatever you want to talk about? Here? Anything goes.... rant or rave away.
 
This group of men is for support for those days when it gets hard to communicate with the wives as it is hard to have fertility issues and sometimes we are the one's who have to understand and cannot. We are a group that allows an alternate outlet to talk to other men experiencing wives who are down, upset and basically trying to handle getting pregnant without success. It will let individuals talk to others in the same situation who can provide answers and support. This is also open to alll fathers who have had children and can offer any type of advice, welcome all!
Chronic Kidney Failure in Dogs
Pets - 50 members
A group for information and discussion and for emotional support for owners and companions of dogs with Chronic Kidney Failure. This is a complex and traumatic illness and affects about a third of all dogs over the age of 12yrs. While there is (as yet) no cure for this disease, there are things that can be done to improve and extend the quality of life for our best friends - and when all else fails, there are people that have traveled this path already that can offer empathy and support to grieving owners. If you wish to ask questions or talk about a particular dog, please head your thread with your dog's name, as this will help identify the discussion.

When Things Go Right
Private - Addiction - 21 members
In recovery, we often see all the bad in the world and have resentments toward doctors, government, family, something. Or maybe that's just me. So, I thought it would be a good exercise to look for good news, people or organizations that are making the world better and winning against injustice and corruption. Things that inspire us and good news are always happening, but sometimes we forget to look for them or disqualify them due to all the bad news we get bombarded with every day. If you are interested in submitting an article or idea, let me know. If you just want to read it, then I will be posting the launch date, as soon as I get enough good news to share. I started the blog already, just waiting to put up some good news. Remember, the more current the news, the more inspiring, so lets try to get the word out. Think local and act local, what's the good news in your neck of the woods?
