I live in Alabama, but for almost 20 years, lived in Columbus, GA, when our girls were growing up and going to school. I am a female, 58 years old. I am divorced and since becoming so ill I had to quit my teaching Elemtary Grades in 2001, when I became disabled and receiving SSDI and SSI. I was ill for years before finaly getting a diagnosis. It is an invisible disease so people don't really believe we could be this sick---because we don't LOOK sick. I have two daughters, Lauren, is an engineer for a large company and lives in Houston, TX. My younger daughter works and lives in Washington D.C. with her husband of 5 years.
