As you've already discovered, this is a wonderful support group. What you say about
your son is so true. It is so much harder to watch our loved ones suffer than to deal with this, ourselves. There are a couple of "youngsters" on this board who I'm sure will chime in (I am your age) and perhaps offer some tips for your son. My son is 28 and suffers from fibromyalgia and psoriatic arthritis. He was diagnosed about
a year ago and still is resistant to some of the necessary lifestyle changes. But, like everything else, adjustment takes time and patience - two things that "youngsters" don't have an overabundance of! LOL
Hope you are feeling well.
