Hi Ime a newby, just joined. I am overweight and really need to lose it. I also have fibromyalgia and bursitis. I am taking lots of medication and hate it basically. I have a talk therapy session booked as well for help and support. I am married and have twins, they are 15 boy and girl. My legs get really painful every day hence lots of painkillers. My husband is very supportive which is great but I struggle with feeling as though I don’t do enough because if my illness.
