my wife claire is 31, she has chronic spondylo arthritis, fibromygia, costochondritis and other occurring health probs, she was dianogsed with arthritis at 15 but pros begun when she was 15. claire is in pain 24/7 and life has become very limited in the last year as her health has become worse. claire becomes very frustrated. she is seen both by several hospital doctors and gps and is monitored closey. despite this claire has raised £32,000 on her own since she was 16 for various charities, even last year from her hospital bed whiile drugged on morphine she wrote hundreds of emails and letters to organised events for ovarian cancer action which was a success, despite her pain she carries on regardless and feels this helps take her mind of her own probs, my wife is a true inspiration to many many others. i am very proud of her.
