Default Hello from Chattanooga

I was diagnosed with fibromyalgia two years ago. I also have Psoriatic arthritis, an autoimmune liver disease called Primary Biliary Cirrhosis, and chronic fatigue syndrome. I am a 44 year old mother of two boys 17 and 13. I have been married for 22 years to my high school sweetheart.

Although I have wonderful family support, I really need to be involved with others with my condition. I am glad to find support. I just wish I had joined sooner. I struggle to deal with the changes this disease has caused in my life. I have been a nurse for 20 years. I am unable to work at this time due to debilitating fatigue. In fact I am unable to do a lot of things due to fatigue.

Looking forward to some really needed support.
