Dear Ticklepingaloo,

I would suggest posting this on the General Discussion forum as it gets the most reads and replies, and perhaps on the disability benefits forum as well.

Hello, I guess this is one of many posts that say I am also new to this disease. I have been suffering with this disease for 5 years and have always thought it too be growing pains even when I could not make it to school because I could not move. Now I am just starting the diagnosing process and hoping to find some hope and support here. Any support groups near the Fargo ND or Sioux Falls SD area. Thanks God Bless

Officially got my PSA diagnosis yesterday. I just moved to Stroudsburg, PA, so I know of no one or even a doctor up here that deals with PSA. I am assuming I got it from my father who basically has no spine left. I worry for my daughter who is 16 and already has everything I have. I think at least two of my sisters have it as well, but they won't listen to me, what do I know, right?
I also have fibro, celiac, hashimotto's Thyroidistis (fancy term for Immuniocomprosmised hypothyroid)and something going on nuero wise that no one can place. Probably another immune thing. I've been suffereing since I was a late teen early adult, about 29 years, and finally someone believed me and now I can get treated and support, if I knew how in this new place.
Thank you.
sally
