Good Morning Chutz,
Thank you so much for sharing with us - your family - about your struggles with the extra pain you're dealing with. As a fellow Fibromite, I can certainly sympathize with what you're going thru. More than that though, I'm thankful that you, as a leader in this group, felt comfortable enough to share with us what was going on.
You don't always have to be the strong one here Chutz. I know you like to "mom" everyone and look out for us, but you certainly need the support as well. Please don't hesitate to reach out when things are harder than usual. We want to be here for you as much as for anyone else.
I hope you find some comfort soon and begin feeling somewhat more "normal". Please know we are all thinking of you and sending good thoughts and healing prayers your way. I can appreciate your fear with the memory loss, so I hope that you find some improvement there as well.
