hello. I've suffered from osteoarthritis for most of my adult life, and had a hip replacement when I was 45. I took very little time off work which vocational always subjugated physical weaknesses consequently ending up with significant mobility difficulties. Since 'retirement' I have spent much more addressing the ways I manage pain giving myself more time and attention. However it sometimes gets me down. Like this morning in my shoulder, so I'm talking to you for emotional support and ideas??.
