Hi...I am almost 53, about 18 months into MCTD ( RA, SLE, Hashimotos, Sjogrens, Mysositis, CREST, Scleroderma, etc ) and trying my best to handle it, along with major family issues. I am doing ok, but to be very honest, sometimes, I think no one " gets " it. I end up angry, frustrated and isolated. There I go, whining again. I went online and found this board and as I have read various posts, I thought - thank you for being here.
