Hi lovely people
Ive had arthritis in my knees for over six years.
Im overweight and sad. Struggling with everything mental health and physical. I want the pain to stop. I can’t have an op. The pain meds take my life away. But also a bit of the pain. Is it worth it, pain free to sleep without being woken up because I left my leg straight and then tried to bend it. Where are the doctors? Where are they?
this is probably too heavy for a first intro but I’m being real. Does anyone feel the same the fact that this community is amazing I can’t tell people about my pain you can’t see it, I look ok except I can’t walk! Why is she just lazy? At last people to talk to who understand.
sorry if I’ve gone on a bit im just grateful you exist.
