I’m writing these letters in response to your questions about living with fibro. Thanks for asking about my health. I know you have been concerned about all the pain I have been experiencing. It has really been a difficult time. I’m so thankful that Michael and the kids have been right here for me but I feel so badly that they are all having to double up on the work. I am also not used to just sitting around. As you know, I am usually always working on the next big project but now I am unable to get around without great pain. Even on good days, I have to be careful not to overdo because fatigue will take over the next day and maybe longer.
As I am able, I will write to you about all the issues I am dealing with because of fibromyalgia. Again thanks for your concern and your prayers. It means more to me than you can imagine.
Scroll on down the page for a list of topics that have been discussed to this point. If you have a question you would like to ask, please leave it in the comments below. Thanks for caring.
