    Hello, my name is Jennifer. I've just gone through a major loss recently losing my mother suddenly along with two pets within a few days. Never mind prior to that I became single ( finally) after a long abusive relationship to say the least. Anyway, in my early twenties, I had several diagnoses thrown at me one after another.. And again in my early 30's. I turned 38 the day before my mother passed away suddenly. I've been diagnosed with RA, fibromyalgia, peripheral neuropathy, 100% nerve damage from the knees down, drop foot, and more. I've been going through such a horrible time in my life and I feel like everything is flaring up! It's unbearable. I can barely walk. I have pain throughout my entire body!! I was on enbrel and methotrexate... And so much more. Now I'm trying zeljanz due to all the side effects enbrel gave me and I feel like that's not helping either. I need any support I can get! Please any help, support, or advice is very much welcome and needed!!
