Hi! I am 64 and live in central Ohio.I retired from a major insurance company after 23 years working as a customer service trainer and overpayment recovery specialist.
I have had DD for at least 40 years but was only diagnosed 5 years ago. I had previously been diagnosed with fibromyalgia. At the present time there is no cure for DD.I use every palliative measure I can think of to make it through the chronic pain. My DD has progressed steadily and now I am pretty much an invalid from the DD combined with diabetes and degenerative arthritis.
I have a wonderful husband, two children and 4 grandchildren so I have a lot to make me happy. I love life despite the pain and other manifestations of DD.I want very much to be of help to all of my fellow sufferers.
Enjoy Life! Hugs, Grandma Sylvia
