    I live on my own now since xmas.i suffer from anxiety depression had strokes . Live with chronic pain from arthritis of hips knees and spine. I am hyperthyroud and reactive hypoglyceamic.
    Have i.b.s. and have many tummy difficulties that my surgeon is fathoming what to do next. 

    So my life is quite difficult because i forget to eat and forget to take medication. I fall a lot. And i am only 48. Unfortunately the strain of everything became too much in our marriage and my husband left at christmas so add a broken heart to the list too.
