Fibromyalgia

I was born in 1957, making me 61 when I joined this group.
My life really changed in 1993 when I had a cerebral hemorrhage which caused me to be legally blind, have fine motor issues, balance problems, and had to learn to walk all over again. Having fibro just complicated these issues further and added some new ones like fatigue.
I am married with 2 grown daughters, 6 grandchildren, and 2 son-in-laws.
My husband and I are both Christians and look for ways to worship and serve God.
