Here goes, im 67 married far a while,i have 2girls and 1 boy by a first marriage.
things lately seem to be going in the wrong direction.
almost 2 years ago i was told i had type 2 diabeties,i had been doing pretty well at first..
but now so many other things has been croping up,i have a thyroid problem,a growth in my throat, sometime
i can't talk far it ,there trying to get it under control.
i am going to a pain mangement clinic to get shots in my back,i have one more treatment,
i have had horrible pain in my legs far years,they thought it was because of my back so i had back surgery,
didn't help,just standing up was so painful,so i started staying home all the time.
but with the shots they have really i am having cramps in my legs so bad at night that i can't sleep.
i have amyotrophy ,its a type of neuropathy in the legs from diabetes,it cause pain and weakness in the legs
my poor hubby has to do all the shopping,he holds down 2 jobs.
