I am in a similar boat. As if being diagnosed with MS a year and a half ago wasn't enough; I now have hand Osteoarthritis. That and my parents calling the police on me is the gifts I got for my birthday. Happy 30th woo hoo! <<<*sarcasm* Freedom so close... In the meantime, I wait patiently (sometimes in tears), still hoping, knowing that this is not the end of the road for me; it can't be.
