Hello. It has been some time since I have been on this site saw the email from Peter and thought I would get in touch again. I have since developed Macular degeneration in my left eye which makes reading rather difficult but I manage. My biggest frustration is fatigue just feeling so tired all the time even if I do sleep well which is not often I feel no benefit. Planning to go anywhere is hard as you don't know how you are going to feel. Friends don't understand the impact pain and fatigue has on your life. I am looking forward to warmer weather and hopefully feeling beater.

Thanks for bearing with me, best wishes.
