About meMost important- Good sense of humour, easy to talk to, positive attitude, determined. I am now on a disability pension. I used to be a nurse and and worked in the medical, surgical and mental health fields. I have worked in private and public hospitals and services and had my own counselling service. I am single, have pets and a garden and I am into arts and crafts when I am well enough. These illness really try my patience, and I, like you, am Sick of being sick !'.

Current health issuesChanges daily. Today I feel I have been beaten up with a baseball bat. Have been doing well and have been highly functioning lately, not predictable though. I have learned much about my mind and body over the years. I find if I do the right thing for myself diet, exercise etc, I will be very well. If I break the rules, I suffer the consequences.
