You are in my thoughts and prayers. Hi I am Cindee -- have a lot of the same--the chronic pain turned me from an active happy person to an invalid stuck inbed. I have all swelling in legs, feet, back is a mess, and really high cholesterol also and HBP.
I am so sorry--I started about late 40's with joint and muscle pain--the rest is lifelong, genetics. It's horrible. You're not alone. So sorry.
Just a quick note to say hi! Hi, wow, that is awesome that you live in Christchurch. I just moved here from America in October. I lived near Seattle, was born in California. I met my Kiwi husband online in a Christian forum a little over a year ago. He is a surveryor here. He came to "get me" in August, spent a month traveling with me around America, then we packed up my stuff (130 boxes) and flew back here, wow, a 14 hour flight over the ocean, ugh. My stuff will not get here until January. I love it here, but sure do get homesick, but, that is normal. I am looking forward to being your friend. Hugs and God bless, Susie
