Hi. My name is Kate and I am 62, married for 41 years, 3 grown children and 3.5 grandchildren. My eldest son is almost 40 and he still lives with us as he has Asperger's. He is quite high functioning as he holds down a job but struggles with social skills.

I have worked within the NHS for most of my working life but I had to retire from my last job as my mind stopped working basically and I became very stressed. I have suffered since the age of 11 from anxiety and depression, I was diagnosed 6 years ago (MRI) with spinal stenosis and more recently with Fibro. I am a breast cancer survivor for 11 years!!
Everyday is a challenge - some more challenging than others. I have become quite isolated since I left my job and find it difficult to socialise. Without my husband I would probably be a recluse.

I look forward to meeting people who understand what fibro pain means and sharing the journey. Thanks for reading this
