Been struggling some. Haven't put any weight on, but not getting that last 15 off either. My son who is in his early forties is very sick. He has severe psoriasis and rheumatoid arthritis. He has had 2 hip replacements and needs both knees done. His hands are crippled. It is hard to see when you can't do much. We all live with my daughter and are doing the best we can. It is hard because he has no insurance. He is trying to get disability, but it takes a long time. Doctors have said he will never be able to work because he can't walk and his hands are becoming useless. He is also in a lot of pain. We pay for his medical care right now, but it is so difficult. I am on social security and do not have much money and my daughter works, but has a family. We struggle, but do what we have to do. It is so scary thinking about what happens when he can't even get out of bed. Now it is a struggle. I am in my 70's and my daughter has to work and has a small child. Some days it is hard to stay positive at all. Praying the disability comes through.
