Want to join us for a trip?
Go to the land with the heaven aglow
Go to the home of the troll and the snow
Lead your dream by the hand
Go for the future you know you can win
Go for the goal that you carry within
Go where the wishes come true
I'll go with you
Climb the mountains, show me your heaven
Lend me your hand and I'll go astray
Life is magic when we're together
Close to you is where I will stay
You've got a fire in your heart
I need your flame to warm me when we're apart
When the world is dark I'll share your light
You'll make my world a star in the night
Linda Jones in LA and I met at Ezboard, later called Yuku. We became close friends and when she visited me in Norway in 2001, we decided to build our own support group on Ezboard. I am grateful to Ezboard for providing us that opportunity. The board we build is still here: http://sunshine35446.yuku.com/ However we later needed another platform that provided a Norwegian package as well. Which Yuku doesn't.
This is what my co-founder Linda expressed about the purpose of the board:
The whole purpose of this board is so people have a place to come to when no one else will listen. When no doctor has an answer. When family and friends don't understand. When you need information. I bet some people do not like to burden others with their problems. I know I don't. And maybe this keeps them afar. I hope everyone feels comfortable here. I can't imagine why not. You couldn't get a better audience than here at Friends. We come from all walks of life, and have much different ideas and experiences that may be helpful.
As Linda said:
- Mosken and I have a dream, to have this little town in cyberspace, for all who are in need. That they can come and feel the comfort of having people around that understand our huge obstacles.

As our moderater Mark said:
Mosken (in Norway), who started this group with Linda (in California) is our guru on Sitting Disability ... the term is now commonly used by the doctors in Maryland where I live ... Please drop by whenever you can, since there's strength in numbers.
My favorite place on Earth..on the ocean in my boat with my husband, family and friends....

Read about sitting disability:
The Friends International support group for people living with chronic pain was founded by Linda and Mosken in the spring 2001. I could never have done this without Linda. Besides, she taught me to be fluent in English. Together we created a home in cyberspace for people living with chronic pain. She is one of them that makes a difference in people's life.
