About Me: Female, 49, Rockford, IL, member since Dec 2007
I'm 41 years old and female,
I've been dealing with fibromyalgia for
[More] the past 10 years, and arthritis for 1 year now. I've also just found out that i cracked a rib due to falling down a flight of stairs 3 times last spring. Unfortunately I've had to retired due to this illness.
I was an hairdress, and loved to see what and how I could change a persons appearance with my hands, and talent.
Having "FMS" has made me appreciate life, and see life in a whole different way..
Accepting what I have become, is the hardest thing I have ever had to do.
However with a supportive husband, children, family, parents, siblings, and cousins with there own illnesses and issue have been my rocks. Thank you God for them all.
