Hi Everyone! I am a disabled Woman Veteran with a ton of different illnesses. I wanted to start this group because I know how frustrating being handicapped / disabled is. I have Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, Fibromyalgia; mild congestive heart failure; a racing heart ( atrial fibulation); type 2 diabetes; obesity; shortness of breath; I'm on oxygen 24 / 7; PTSD - MST; and MAJOR depression; plus a lot more. Just can't think of all them right now. I just turned 62 a few weeks ago. I would love to get to know you better.

Thank you Carmen for starting this group.Albuquerque was mentioned in one study in the ninties as one of the top 10 cities for the disabled. The good weather and transportation were two positive factors. Yet there remains much to be done so it's good to have this forum.

Hi Braceman

Thank you for posting in the Disabled / Handicapped Support Group. Your post is very interesting. I didn't know that about the report. We moved here 4 years ago because of the good weather. We love it here! I hope that in time we get more people posting. Please keep in touch. Thanks !

Hello, I would like to know if there is a social group in the Albuquerque area for young people (20s/30s) to get together for support and/or have get-togethers?
