Hi, my name is Cwtchfairy!

I have Fibromyalgia and CFS, and have mobility problems due to arthritis in both knees ( but told that I am too young for knee replacement surgery at ages 60 !! ). I was diagnosed with skin cancer in Aug 16 and had surgery to remove a malignant melanoma. I am also awaiting surgery on my shoulder  ( pre-med tests being done on 20th Feb ). 
I have worked all my life but my job came to an end in Dec 2015 as a combination of my ill health and my job role being discontinued due to cutbacks. 
I also have a husband who is battling cancer, so we care for each other as best we can. 
I am going for a medical assessment soon to see if I am entitled to be in the Support group. 
Wish me luck!! 
I have browsed some of the information here on this site, and it is so helpful, so I feel confident that I can ask for help if necessary. 
Thank you. X
