  • Here you see me sitting with my husband, nephews, son in law, grandsons and daughter at a relaxed and joyful family gathering.
    I have fibromyalgia which means I am in pain all the time. Not just straight forward pain in one area, but pins and needles, burning sensations, fuzzy head, and sluggish circulation.
    I do not let this affect my joy of life, wonder of the world and participation in my family's activities. I have a wonderful husband who supports me every day as I cannot carry shopping, wash the floor or the windows, make a bed and so on.
    Luckily for me I don't look ill.
