Honestly, if you have been complaining about this sporadically over the last year, the doctors DID do the correct testing for all of the common ailments fir...

Re: Just Diagnosed

Hi Lee
I can't imagine being sick and having to tend to children.
We do what we have to do. My husband has dementia and is a big child.

He does not understand I am sick. My daughters help me although they have jobs and family themselves.


I have not quite figured out posting and responding
