      Hi Kaz, have you given her information about our condition? My husband works and I too lad to stop working last year as I pushed myself soooo far that my body crashed and I was so exhausted and in so much pain plus memory and concentration really bad I was almost bed ridden for a year. I'm arthritic too. My illness then got worse and I'm hypothyroi, high BP high cholesterol, cfs. Please do not let this happen to you. My poor hubby does so much for me now and all my friends have watched me go through this. She is just ignorant of this condition which when menopausal has even worse hormonal effects. Maybe she can come and help look after you rather than moan? If it was the other way round would you not care for her? Sending you gentle hugs xx

      Hi gizmo Ive tried explainig to her till Im blue in the face every oppertunity its digs digs and more digs. shes 86 this year hun to be honest with you anything she has ever helped with has been thrown in our faces. so I wouldnt want her help. shes never liked me and didnt want her son to marry me. as she didnt feel I was good enough for him all because I had 2 children out of wedlock weve come close to splitting up because of his mom interfering in our marriage.my husband has to use a days holid to takeme to appointments she doesnt like him doing that. Put up with her for my husbands sake I would look after her if it was the other way round take care gentle hugs xx

      Thats the difference between the kind and caring person you are compared to her! We all have a past - my children to not belong to my husbant but he adores them as if they are his own. His mother was a lovely woman too so I guess I was lucky there. You have a good husband and that is who matters. You have enough to deal with so youve got to try and ignore her if you can - easier said than done eh hugs and xxxs

    Absolutely your NOT nor are you mentally ill, they love to throw that at you too. You may benefit from drugs in that department but not because you are mentally ill some do help in a physical condition too, I was born with a slight imperfection of my connective tissue Hypermobile look up EDSIII or EDSHT then have got a connective tissue disease Sjogren's
