Never Felt Old

I am 77 and never had any health issues. Did all my yard work, painted my house, and went to the gym 5 days a week.

Last March got sick with a virus and could barely function. Lots of blood work, which didn't show anything wrong. Frustrating time.

Finally, my PC sent me to a rheumatologist and was diagnosed with MCTD. Been on Hydroxychloroquine for four months. It has helped. I look the same but I don't feel the same, now I feel my age.
