I've been here on SP for 14 years, and counting.
I'm not such a great success story.
YET!
Consistency is my TOUGHEST challenge in life!

I live in north central Wisconsin, Mom to 6 grown kids.
We have a complicated life.
One of our most challenging complications was recently identified; Ehlers-Danlos Syndrome, aka, EDS. It's a connective tissue disorder. It's often accompanied by other issues like POTS, MCAD, FMS, CFS, ACM, and numerous other things. It's also confused or misdiagnosed far too often with one of the above or countless others.

Still - life goes on, doesn't it?
I'm 62 now. The day will come when all my kids will actually be living on their own and doing fine in managing all their own complicated issues. Something I've been doing for them for 38 years running - and still doing for some.
Then what?
My hope is to improve my own health, my own finances, my own life, etc. to the point that I can then travel. I want to visit in person with all the wonderful people I've met online!
