Saying Hello

Afternoon warrior's my name is Leeann, I suffer from Fibromyalgia and osteoarthritis.

I have 3 kid's one already left home and set up his own wee home and family. My other 2 kid's are 10 and 7...😁

My husband is disabled he has Caudia Equina Syndrome (which means he has no feelings in his saddle area, he's double incontinent with very limited mobility..... πŸ˜”πŸ˜”.. He also suffers with chronic pain...

We find it difficult some day's but we somehow we struggle through each day and look after our babies.

Hope everyone is as well as you can be this Saturday afternoon, I'm in Bonnie Scotland and it's a very windy day here.

Hope my introduction is okay. Xx

A 1000 welcomes to you in windy Scotland. Did you know you could likely get some help for caring if you do not have it already?

Well done for keeping things stable and clearly you site name says it all mykidsmylife!

As young as they are you can get them to read the young persons Fibro guide obtainable from our sister site fmauk.org.

Keep posting remember to lock your posts to community only(FAQ at side of page)

Obviously you are a strong person so seek support from forum and a local support group if convenient.
