We talked Sat night finally. Its been too long. He admited that hes scared and he's not trying to push me. But Im sure you guys get how I took it. It's an old argument. Im no Martha either ; ) I was always at the park or in the yard with the kids while home. I hate being inside and a potatoe. He also said what Ive heard alot on here... "I dont get how you can have something with no cure. They have to be wrong. Youre too young to be this sick" I laughed and said I guess not. Though I have to say I did have tears in my eyes. Hee agreed that after this new Dr agrees with this diagnosis then he would stop saying it. Thanks for understanding guys. If any of you live in Jersey feel free to stop by. Dont mind the mess ; )

The same here we always used to joke on who would get to die first. Weird I know. I told him now Im beating him. He hurt his back at work shortly after I met him and its been a problem ever since. Now it looks like Ill be a cripple before him. I think in a way hes wishing itwere him but I would rather it be me.

Ros..........I think sometimes the RA becomes WORSE with the load we

take on in our lives...at 61, I am tooo old to fight anymore...the job

scene is OVER....and children at home plus parttime employment is a

terrifying thought....

I can only putter around the house....limited to sewing a baby dress

for my baby granddaughter....and doing any handwork in the bed. My

back prevents my from doing much....I wish all you younger ladies and

gents will be able to lessen your load...whether job, children, circumstances...listening to "world news",........because even as a

putterer....life is difficult.

I agree with Cy. We have much the same lifestyle. I know how hard it can be with only hubby and me and wonder how you with young familes and/or work do it.

God bless each of you.

thanks Cyrusray and bits. I want to keep the kids until they launch to college. and i desparately want to keep the mortgage in order to get some of the equity for college tuition. we've lived like bohemians for so long I figure we can use the equity that never went to modernization to help with tuition. and I have to keep my job for the health insurance. but maybe the silver lining is I can't quit, so I don't sit down, so I will not turn to a pillar of salt, at least yet? Smile your posts made me feel better. i rather be on top of the world than on the pity pot.
