Hi Liana, this thread used to have quite a few people on it. I participated for years but kind-of dropped out a couple of years ago. Most of the people have about stopped, it seems. I've been posting in here for almost 14 years but the last year or so no one much has been here when I would come back to read the posts so I stopped, too. I keep up with one or two on face book.
I have Rheumatoid and Osteoarthritis & Fibro as well as various other aliments like anemia, tinnitus, neuropathy and glaucoma. I manage on as few meds as I can get by with including 2 big ones: Methotrexate & Enbrel.
Like everyone else, I have my good days and my bad days.
I worked with all this mess, raised 2 kids, 4 grandkids and ran the house for years but I'm retired now so can kind-of call the shots if I want to stay in bed a little longer or get up and try to act nice.
Hope some of you guys DO get back in here soon!!! I miss talking to you.
