    Hi Everyone,

    This is the first time I’ve ever participated in an online forum. I have great respect for Beyond Blue & look forward to participating. I have experienced significant health problems over the past few years & am struggling emotionally with this. I’m hoping to read the experiences of others who may share similar issues.

    Looking forward to participating

    Hope

    Thanks so much. Does anyone know how to search posts, example for Topic, or by person?

    I had my life turned around by surgery that went badly wrong, and although I’m on opioids, I’m never free from pain. I’d love to read posts by others with similar issues.

    Wishing everyone a good day 🌸

    Hope I think searching or browsing topics is a good start. Start broad then narrow down.
