I identify with this passage so much. I was diagnosed with osteoarthritis at the age of 30 and now at 35 fibromyalgia. I’m lucky, because I don’t need mobility aids, yet. My flares are pretty painful and the fatigue really holds me back in life. You have a real gift for writing and the good news is you can use speech to text technology to do your job if your hands begin to fail you. You can still have your dream and I hope you still strive for that because I think you have a gift and could help a lot of people. Much love.
