  3. My husband is my main caregiver. I am awaiting diagnosis and he's amazing. I can take care of my needs but he brings me things from time to time and takes care of my small children, cooking, cleaning and shopping. He also is the one who takes me to any doctors appointments.

    1. he sounds like a wonderful soul! So glad you have him. Awaiting an accurate diagnosis can be agonizing- our community gets it.
