I've been reading "The Wisdom of Menopause" by Christiane Northrup, MD...it covers all aspects of the change of life. I was reading Chapter 4 that covers the function of adrenal glands and I now have a theory as to why I suddenly developed massive arthritis...I have been chronically stressed for the entire 8 years of my relationship with DH and his kids and his ex-wife. My body just could not take anymore and succumbed to a bug and then went haywire.
I have to make serious changes in my lifestyle.
So I have to take care of Me. That means eating right, exercising, figuring out my own medical care and supplements to treat the arthritis, seeing my friends and what little of my family I care to see, saving money in my own name, basically making my own decisions about what's best for me. DH will always take the position that he's right and for the most part I will let him think he is since I'm not interested in arguing. But ultimately I will do what I think is best for ME.
