      💕Hello Warriors! I have chronic pain, physical limitations & multiple chronic illnesses. I also have a lot going on within my body too. I've had over 90+ surgeries (ongoing) and personally understand how illnesses & injuries can consume most or all out of one's life. I've been dealing with my journey for almost 30 years. Feel Free to ask me anything!

      Hi!! I’m also excited to be able to connect with people who can relate to having chronic illnesses even if they’re not the same! I suffer from Crohns, psoriasis, uveitis, GERD, and lymphocytic esophagitis!

      Hi! And that's why we are all here.. because we can certainly relate to each other with so much!!! It's amazing how one single accident can change our lives in an instant. Or how an illness can be so consuming for so many years. Yet, here we all are.. able to offer encouragement through experience and understanding to each other. 🦋🦋

      😥 no sadly my wife couldn't have children though we tried. Would you mind if we talk about this in dm? Direct messages?

      That definitely was a really incredibly hard year for you, star! So much in such a short period of time can be beyond overwhelming. You have made it so far though. Do you have children near you? Grandchildren?

      Oh gosh... I am just so sorry!!! I know how hard it is watching someone on dialysis. Have you opted for it now though?

      Yes.. well I have been depressed actually since I was a little kid but nobody ever diagnosed me I had a bad childhood living with an alcoholic father so the depression has been there a long time. My wife died in 2006 August 24th and I found out I was diabetic September 3rd of '06 and then my mom died at 3 months later two days after Thanksgiving of 06 so 06 was the hardest year in my life. My wife died of diabetes complications so when I was diagnosed I was devastated because I watched what my wife went through and I did not want dialysis. So yes 2006 basically started it all for me

      I definitely understand the depression and the back pain for sure. I have been battling depression for many years too with all of this. You said since 2006. Is that when all of this really started for you?

      I battle chronic constipation even following a complete colectomy, chronic migraines 365 24/7 that followed a head injury from a ATV accident in 2016. I also fractured a couple vertebrae in that accident too: T12, L2. Then just the basic asthma. Lol!
