Not old age

I played a lot of sports in my younger years and worked 3 jobs to support my children.

As I hit my forties everything started hurting. Old they said! 2014 triple bypass surgery this month, blood work came back with rheumatoid factor 175iu/ml.

ANA positive and waiting to see a specialist because the family doctor will not treat me because of my heart condition.
