What's going on

Last updated: February 2017

In 2010 I notice these aches and my joints were so bad I couldn't walk I called to my son to help me out of bed. I went to the ER and they said they couldn't help me,so I fought it. Then that same year I had the flu for 9 months. I just thought I was overworking. Then on June 25, 2010 I had a stroke! I went to emergency. With a stroke I also had a collapsed lung! From my severe cough they did all these test on me and they found out I have lupus, RA, fibromyalgia and osteoporosis. Now I have some else called Costochondritis associated with RA and that is painful I hate all this I'm always tired, and sleepy and in pain.
