January 16, 2014
Grew up in Milwaukee area & also lived in OH & IN; 56 years old, 1 husband of 29 yrs, 2 adult sons, 1 cat & 1 dog. Was very ambitious professional until illness sidelined me about 15 yrs. ago. In addition to fibro, have diabetes and am cancer survivor(for 20 yrs & counting, yeah!) Favorite things are dogs, lake living and family time.
Would love to meet others in similar circumstances & trade notes. Hope to find out how to cope with illness while still maintaining an active life outside my home, either as volunteer or paid employee. Also hope to form some friendships and help others based on my 15 years experience with this illness.
I was diagnosed with fibro about 20 years ago, shortly after recovering from cancer. I finally quit working about 10 years ago, so I feel like this disease took both my health & career. Looking to share info on coping & treatment options.
