I'm in a suburb of Chicago, I'm an old lady of 54, have several medical issues that prevent me from working. Happily married to my DH for 33 years. I'm an artist, right now I do watercolor, ink and hot glass. Taught hot glass for 12 years, as well as jewelry making. Fibromyalgia, Chronic Fatigue and arthritis prevent me from doing what I want. I wish Illinois would pass Medical MJ already, for chrissakes. The doctors give me opiates for pain, antidepressants for depression caused by chronic pain, but I can't handle mj? Anyway, I'm glad to find this forum, it's interesting!
