Hi everyone 😉
I suffer with fibromyalgia & Hypermobility syndrome. Several years ago i was a passenger in my EXs car when we were hit from behind. I suffered a minor vertebal dissection and stroke. During my divorce i suffered a second stroke.
Before the accident i had just gained my nursing Diploma...alas i have lost everything. I have short term memory loss and left sided weakness as well as Diplopia & binocular double vision and tinnitus & 20% hearing loss too. I am also on a cocktail of drugs...and yes feeling lost and hopeless xx

Welcome Donna, find something new for yourself it took me ten years, to realize my former life as a social worker and very active mom for my one child. I have done volunteer in my home and now I am a scrap booker,card maker etc. some products I sell but most now are just to keep hands loose, and mind alert ...I take a load of RX a day. I have been disabled since 1985. Swannoma of the spine was the first Dx and now after 15 surgeries, and loads of other procedures....I am home bound for the most part it is just easier, less stressful. Prayer has also been my saving grace. When the pain is so bad my number one suggestion from my hubby is SCREAM!,, god bless
