that is open 24/7. Some folks stay here, even when they are in remission, to help others. To keep the lights on, keep the coffee brewing, sweep the floor, whatever is needed.
Others leave when they are in remission. That's also ok. Maybe the reminder of the pain is something they don't want to deal with. Maybe they want to live their life during remission, not being constantly reminded that they have a disability. That's ok too. We will still be here when those folks need to come back for support again.
I just hope that the folks that do tend to leave and come back haven't burned any bridges along the way.
Smart-ass responses tend to get forgotten over time, and cluster pain always gets support here.
I really hope you're not coming into cycle, but if you are, I can pretty much guarantee you that there will be folks here to help you when you need it. Just take a step back and try to see the big picture here. And don't let yourself fall into the trap of burning bridges you may need to cross.
