Hi Ele and Welcome!
Like Marlee said, plenty of us are getting into the 50's and 60's and our bodies are aging on top of the fibro. I have moderate arthritis in my neck but know it can become severe the older I get.
Yes, and I'm with you, there are people worse off than us and I have had to remind myself of that. A-w-w-w, a 2 year old grandson- aren't they fun?! I have two granddaughters now, one is 3 yrs and the other 5 mos. old. They are such a joy!
This sure can get complicated. I have been off of work since the fibro hit hard 6 mos. ago. I hope to work very parttime at some point. So I understand cutting back on hours, our bodies just cannot handle it.
Wish you luck on losing weight and keep us posted on how your doing!
