Hi, my name is Deej_2404!

I have currently unable to work for 3 years due to disability. Although I hate classifying myself as such as there are so many more people worse than me. I suffer with Chronic Depression and Anxiety, chronic fatigue syndrome, Chronic Pancreatitis and have been hospitalised 17 times with acute Pancreatitis. I also suffer with fibromyalgia.  I also have a heart problem and had to have a double heart bypass in April 2004 when I was 35 ( I'm now 48). I also have joint problems with both shoulders and I am awaiting an operation on both. I have problems with my left hip  and lower back, vitamin D deficiency and an Under active Thyroid. 
I apologise for going on and on.

    Hello @Deej_2404 and welcome to the community.

    As @steve51 said, no need to worry about 'going on' as this is why we are here.

    While I understand where you are coming from when comparing your own condition to others you are lot worse off than some our members, so you are in the right place.

    Are you looking for something in particular we can help you with, or just wanting to join in, both of which you are most welcome to do.

    As an individual I stood alone.
    As a member of a group I did things.
    As part of a community I helped to create change!
