Just noticed you are a newbie- welcome to the boards tasmin
Post as musch or as little as you like on here, have a good nosey around the different sections and use the 'search' tool at the top right hand corner if you want to find anything in perticular.
Everyone on here is very friendly, these boards are my lifelines and i would be lost without all my friends that i have made on here- i dont know what i would do without it- it totally rocks!!
I would definately reccomend joining the HMSA, you then get a newsletter and can then come on the weekends away (yay!), - a chance to to meet evberyone that you have been chatting to and put names to faces, or is it putting faces to names?! hehe Anyway at the weekends away it is not just a social thing (alough it is a great time to network with eachother!), there are talks/sessions from doctor's, physio's, ot's etc etc...
Anyway, i just wanted to post again to say 'welcome to the hmsa boards' - i hope all my babbiling made some sort of sense to you!! hehehe!
