Cheryl’s story

Hello and thank you for accepting me to this group. I am a mom of two amazing adult, happily married kids and Nana to 4 grands, 9 months to 17 years.

I was diagnosed with RA 5 years ago but I believe I had it long before that. I was recovering from the first of two major spine surgery’s when things went in another direction. Since I have been also diagnosed with fibromyalgia and sjogrens to add to my chronic migraines and chronic pain. I’m told those sometimes go hand in hand with RA. As I said I’m a Nana. And a very active one in the lives of our grandchildren. They are Gods blessings to us and what keeps me up and going. I have been married 44 years to an amazing man who took his marriage vows deep in heart way back then as he shows me every day that as he says “ he signed up for it all” I’m an avid crafter and a rather positive person. That so I’d rather look at the positive side of negative things. Above all. I am a child of God.
