Hi, my name is Ladywendyj!

I'm 57 and have fibromyalgia, chronic fatigue and a back and knee injury that will eventually mean I'll need a wheelchair permanently. Thank the lord for my motability car and my little scooter. Otherwise I'd be housebound. I try to stay positive although, we all know thats not always possible. I just think 'there are people in this world who have it a lot worse than you do. So quit the pity party' lol.
So hello everyone. Xx
