@navylady, Hi there. You are never alone with this disease! Myself, and many others on this site know exactly how it feels to deal with this. Nobody will understand any better than one who also has it. As much as I educate my hubby, he still doesn't really get it. My enemy at the moment is lack of energy. He often cannot understand why I just cannot snap out of it and have a more active lifestyle. Have you had a chance to review some of the older posts? Have you visited the list of topics in the 'Discussion' board? Please let me know if you need help navigating this site, and ask as many questions as you want.
