I joined the forum last year but haven't been around much.
I am yet another Kate. I am 57 years old, married to Keith for 36 years with three grown children, the eldest of which has Aspergers syndrome and still lives with us. I have two cats who alternately keep me sane and drive me nuts!
I was diagnosed last October with cervical spinal stenosis and take Lyrica for the nerve symptoms. I also suffer from depression and am a survivor of breast cancer which was treated in 2003.
I am a bit of a recluse these days having taken ill health retirement from my job in the NHS, but I like to read, write, potter in the garden and I have just taken up knitting again - on very large needles - just to try to keep my arthritic hands moving. I also like to make greeting cards but not being much good with scissors and craft knives I mostly use computer graphics and crafting CDs.
Look forward to being around more often on this friendly community.
