Hi all, I suffer from a multitude of syndromes and disabilities just to name a few EDS, HMS, arthritis, fibromyalgia, muscle spasms and spacticity, I have had heart attacks, oh the other year I got pneumonia which led to an empyema in my plural cavity on my left lung and somehow while putting a drain on they managed to rupture my spleen and kill me, good job they brought me back lol. 

I am now waiting for cancer results and more tests and operations for lots of other problems that I have. 

Yes, as you can guess I also suffer depression but in my eyes with all my problems I'm entitled to self pity too.

I am 48 years old with 4 adult children and 2 grandkids on the way which will bring so much joy into my life, I can't wait!

    Hi @Zalensia welcome to the community!

    I understand this has been very traumatic for you! It's good to see that you are focusing on the positives, when are your grandchildren due?

    If there is anything at all that we can help you with then please do not hesitate to let us know! :)

    Welcome to the community @Zalensia
    It sounds like you have so much going on, but becoming a grandparent must be a really exciting time! When are they due?

    Thank you for the welcome. My grandchildren are due on 7th December and the other I find out on 12th November when they have their 3 month scan but she thinks may. 

    I am very excited and I can still crochet so make lovely items for them, I used to knit but nearly took my eye out with a spasm LMAO so banned from knitting ?

    Having something to look forward to helps with the depression.  xxx

    I'm stuck in bed again today but I'll try and get down to the sun lounger later, if not today then defo tomorrow. 

    I hate being sick on holiday, I just want back in my cosy adjustable bed! Nothing worse than being sick on a foreign country. 

    I was on the sun bed the other day and a little girl came and asked what happened to my belly, I have a massive scar running down it. I told her it was my zipper and told her to go ask her mum why she doesn't have one lmao kids are cute without fear adults treat you differently inn the street x
