I think I joined yesterday or was it the day before I can't remember lol I think I jumped the gun a bit answering posts first.
Anyway here is a quick version of me and why I am here, had an RTA in 97 suffered severe whiplash ended up with fibro, slipped discs 2 weeks after accident related not sure, felt very let down and alone by the NHS and Dr's had to have Mctimoney treatment was very expensive but so worth it and also reflexology just can't afford them now. Was finally diagnosed in Salisbury but my golly was I put through my paces the Rheumy made me cry it was worth it as sent a brilliant report back to my G.P he has left and now no longer under the Hospital as my G.P said he can offer what the Hospital can and it is a 50 or so mile trip so guess he is right.
I also have an underactive Thyroid, high BP, IBS, Interstitial cystitis. Tinnitus, Meniers. and severe CFS, suffer from bouts of severe depression and stress other than that life is grand llol.
I have 3 grown up lads one married 3 G/Kids Beth 12, Aaliyah 4 in June and Fleur 3 in August.
I am married to Andrew who is fantastic have 2 dogs (I must be mad!!) Bertie who is almost 10 months and Charlie 5 months.
Oh and I had to give up work several years ago sadly as loved my job was working from home as a picture framer miss the wonderful friendships I had built up and would so love to work again but can't see how with the daily struggles I am sure most of us have.
Well I look forward to meeting and getting to know you all Ruby xx
