I'm Debbie, I'm nearly 43 & have been happily married for 25+ years We have 4 children Samantha 25, Gary 22, Steph 19 & Nicole 18 yrs. We also have a nearly 3 year old Grandson who is the biggest joy & we are expecting our 2nd Grandchild in November, so excited
On my 25th birthday I had tonsililltus (sp?) & got sunburned, this kick started severe Plaque Psoriasis, Psoriasis is in my maternal family. After a number of years of odd pains around my body & swelling in my ankles I was referred to the RNHRD in Bath. I was diagnosed with osteoarthritis & Psoriatic Arthritis, 2 years later my Rheumatologist also diagnosed Fibromyalgia.
I used to work as a voluntary netball coach at a Primary School, I worked as a Barmaid & my main job was as a Gymnastic Club Coach. Unfortunately I can no longer work & am on Dla.
My husband is severely disabled due to Neurologists giving him contraindicated meds which has caused severe nerve end damage, his health continues to deteriorate & he seems to have a another new diagnosis added every year.
Its hard work but I try to plod on
I look forward to getting to know you & hope for some great advice & support
