Me. Copious amounts of ibuprofen and caffeine. To my new friends, I was diagnosed with muscular dystrophy in 2015. It’s always annoyingly THERE, but sometimes flares up in exacerbation, determined to keep me on a heating pad.
Neuromuscular disease. I am 39 but, at times, have the aches and pains of someone much older.

Blessed are those whose strength is in you, whose hearts are set on pilgrimage. As they pass through the Valley of Baka, they make it a place of springs; the autumn rains also cover it with pools. They go from strength to strength, till each appears before God in Zion. Psalm 84:5-7
