Trying To Stay Strong

I have been living with MCTD for two years now I have two teenage sons , and I'm a divorced single mother . Due to my condition I can not work at all .I go days in pain , or my hands lock up on me . I use to be a pastry chef .. and I miss working or just feeling better . I had to set my pride aside and file for disability. I have my days when I feel better and then I feel so weak and in pain . But despite all that , I keep God first and try to stay positive .

Hello. I am sorry for what you're going through, and I understand. I got sick a decade ago, but wasn't dx'd with this until a couple of years ago. I had body pain, joint pain, extreme fatigue, and memory loss. I had to quit working and go on disability at that time. It's hard to do that. You're in my prayers, and if you want to talk just send a note. God bless you.
