I am a new member
Hello everyone, I was recently diagnosed with Diffuse Idiopathic Skeletal Hyperostosis known as DISH. I am 60 years old and my last employment was as a health care assistant for the NHS at my local hospital. I joined this site to hopefully connect with others suffering the same as me but also get as much information as I can about a condition I never knew existed until I was told I had it!
Its very early days for me and I am still coming to terms with my diagnosis but trying hard to stay positive! The key for me is to keep moving which I am working hard at doing. I start physiotherapy this week as I was told it will help so fingers crossed. I have good and bad days but I am determined I am not giving in! Thanks for reading 😊
