Hey all. I'm Erica AKA Els.
I'm a 34 year old mum of 3, Jack 16, Ashleigh 13 and Grace 3. I'm married to Jake who is 25 this month.
I was diagnosed with Fibro when I was 21 along with Osteo-Arthritis. Then last year I was told I have relapse remitting MS which has been a struggle to deal with if I am honest.
Having all 3 conditions make it difficult on a daily basis, mainly due to the medication I am on I think.
The main problem is getting people to understand how I feel. I am lucky in the fact I have some amazing family who help me lots and are amazingly understanding if I am unable to do anything for days, but I also have family who don't seem to be able to understand why I need to vent about being stuck in bed again when all I want to do is go out with my hubby and daughter. I do have an electric wheelchair but I am slowly becoming anxious about leaving the house more and more. I get panic attacks outside and hate people seeing me like that so it is easier to stay indoors and avoid that situation.
anyway, that will do for now.
Off to finish watching the rugby.
Hugs all round.xx
