    i am so glad i found this site. i have been struggleing to find an outlet for my questions. i live in a town where the only people i know are my husband and his family. my family and friends are in another state.(how i got here is another story). Anyway i have had problems with my arms for years and was told i had golfers elbow and tenniswirst or something else that had nothing to do with anything. at least thats what i thought.it realy made me mad. so i just worked thru it and with it until last year. i lost my job because of illness. go figure right.it took me 27 years to find the one thing i was good at and loved doing and now i cant do it because it causes me pain. my hubby isnt sure if i am faking or if im being truthful. my doc has me over loaded on meds i cant afford so i have to pick and choose what i am going to take. it makes me feel like jumping off the nearest cliff. i realy hate my life at the moment and just wish it would get better.

    I can relate to you in many ways. I am struggling every day to hold on to my job because I need the income and I find it rewarding but my health isn’t cooperating. Every day gets harder and harder. My hubby’s attitude sounds like your hubby. My hubby often tells me I need to toughen up. I love him but he just doesn’t get it sometimes. I am happy to meet you and I really hope that you are able to find joy and happiness soon as well as feeling better.

    I don't feel well right now ( neck too tight) but hope to get to know you both better.:)

    I'm sorry your husband's are not as supportive as you would like. Maybe they just need more info on your condition, so they can understand it better?

    I'm glad you found this site, lot's of info, and great people who DO understand!:)

    Take care,

    Claudia
