  • Pot-pourri Sunday XIV

    I've written of the fact that all pain is neurogenic, a complaint of pain is complex (and the reason why so many different modalities "work"), we need a "team" to deal with painful complaint and the ideas that PTs are relegated to "strengthening" only (this gave rise to efficiency).

    My number of views have plummeted.

    Hi Barrett
    Unfortunately it seems like there's not a whole lot of actual discussion on SS anymore, compared with a few years ago. There must be PTs with important thoughts to share though.

      FB seems to have changed or eliminated any discussion. Differing views followed by an argument for the position you've taken is required.

        I agree with Gilbert, there's not much discussion here anymore. Facebook may be partially to blame, but it seems to me that for the last few years SomaSimple has mostly been dominated by one person's posts. I can't speak for anyone else, but that's why I don't log on more often than every 6 months, and why I can't recommend it to colleagues anymore. I've always gotten a lot out of your posts, Barrett.

          I've always encouraged other writers, but most haven't taken me up on it. I grew silent eventually, and I certainly don't write much. We've been overwhelmed by social media and SS isn't part of that. I remember you Patrick and we'll always have that terrible, well, interesing hotel in New York.

            Oh for the good old days when we could have a lively argument on Somasimple...

            now it's like "Where is everybody? Diane? Jason? anyone here?..."

            I'll add my appreciation for Barrett's writing, even if I don't always follow a lot of the cultural references.

            And thank you Jo for the useful information you post; I just wish there were more different voices and viewpoints so that more active discussion would take place. In the past it made for very entertaining (and educational) reading and was well worth checking daily!

              I really miss the discussion here at SS. Where did everyone go? I tend to tune into twitter these days but a true discussion to enhance in depth learning and introspection is near impossible in that environment/

                When I initially joined SS it was a place many feared. That's why I liked it so much. The discussions were deep, challenging and thought provoking. The participation has plummeted. I'd bet much is due to twitter and facebook. I think some is due to the difficult navigation of this place. People want easy access. SS does not have that. One look upon visiting and people run. I can speak for multiple people that've come to the home page only to comment on how messy it looked. It's not eye friendly and easy to use.

                  I find the new set up much more difficult to navigate and I haven't been able to make a donation either since the change, as I keep getting directed to the French version of PayPal

                My personal strategy is to stay off FB and Twitter as much as possible....does not work for everybody...
