Marie, the moderators have given us various ways of reading the Mayo Connect posts. I think you can avoid reading any personal observations. Just take a look at the main site or at the digest and avoid the topic “Non pain related personal discussions.” In regard to what medic has said about not being interested in “hearing anecdotal references to Uncle George’s problems”: ALL of our postings are anecdotal. What works for one person for pain may not work for another person. So, medic and Marie, why not avoid a topic that gets you upset?
I think the forum is very helpful. For those who don’t, for whatever reason, he or she can sign off. What I’d love to see is more politeness and civility. Yes, we are ALL in pain. But we are all humans on the other side of the computer screen. Please, let’s just be polite in a very impolite world. Thanks.
Just my opinion. Or perhaps “just my anecdote.”
Jennifer, I really need to take pictures of my furry guys and girls: 10 cats and 2 dogs, all rescues, all seniors, and most with special needs. They mean so much to me, they entertain me, they love me unconditionally, and I love them just as much.
Justin, thanks so much for creating the “Non pain related personal discussions” thread! I really appreciate it! There’s no way you can know in advance what sorts of discussions will occur on this forum, so you can’t create discussion topics until someone lets you know that they might be needed. Thanks for being so responsive! It’s really easy to start a new discussion, and I hope that people will take advantage of this feature. Simply complaining and not asking for or suggesting a solution doesn’t get anyone anywhere, except peeved.
Personally, I love hearing about people’s pets and personal matters. We’re brought together here because we all have chronic pain, but there’s a lot more going on in our lives than just that. I think we need to celebrate the fact that, despite our physical difficulties, we do have reasons to be happy to be alive.

My only knowledge about ketamine comes from having worked in animal shelters and vet clinics. It was used there to tranquilize animals before they were put to sleep, or, at higher dosages, to euthanize them. Sounds like heavy-duty stuff.
