Each day is a gift, I have multiple diagnosed diseases/causes
Posted on March 20 2015
I am 54 years old, I was diagnosed with I.B.S. when I was 22, then and I was diagnosed with Rosacea at 23, plaque Psoriasis at 25. At age 38,I had trouble walking. My left leg would get this horrible pain, it would just give out and I would fall. I was diagnosed with beginning of Necrosis in Left Talus bone(3 surgeries later, years apart, Osteo necrosis of L-Talus). So at age 38 I was walking with a cane. Finally after putting up with muscle and joint pain constantly for 10 years, at 48 I was diagnosed with Fibromyalgia,Rheumatoid, Psoriatic Arthritis, and Osteoarthritis. I have worked all my life up until 2010. I helped take care of my dad who had Parkinson's disease,then both parents after my mom had her hip replacement. I hope to work again soon. I go to physical therapy and get infusions to slow down damage of psoriatic and rheumatoid. I walk my faithful rat terrier on my good days. My husband and I moved south for the warmer climate. I look at everyday as an adventure and a smile.
