Hi Julie,

And welcome back to Healingwell. Sounds like you have had a rough go of it. You are not alone in feeling much older than you are, many of us feel the same. I myself have had this darn disease for over 35 years, but luckily it hasn't been as bad as yours. So ask any questions you may have, I am sure one of our wonderful members will have some good advice for you.
