Welcome home! I think it will be refreshing to hear how many of us cope. You will soon realize, you are not alone.
I do not work. I haven't worked since 98. I am always amazed that some people still work with fibro, its not something I could do. More power to you.
I live in MN, and I love gardening, reading and travel. We have a short season for gardening and I do all that I can, oftentimes more. I admire the intricate work you do with boats, I would be all thumbs.
