I am a single mother and engaged who is no longer a member of the workforce due to my chronic conditions (primarily Fibromyalgia, Polyarthralgia and Neuralgia). I am struggling to redefine myself.
These conditions/issues are life long and have impacted every part of my life. My ex-husband, Fiancee and son know first hand the daily battles…family and friends see glimpses. I know that I am not alone.
The concerns that our son has are shared by other children of sick parents. We parents as well as our children need to know it is okay to be scared, to have questions….to know that we can find strength when we reach out to help others.
Thank you for sharing this journey…
