Hi Everyone,

My name is Linsey and I live just outside Glasgow. I am 41.

I was born with a condition called Klippel Trenaunay Syndrome. The vascular malformation affected the bone growth and joints in my right leg. I was informed at age 14 that I had severe degeneration in my right hip, knee and femur. At age 26 I had hip replacement and 27 I had knee replacement.

Due to walking with a limp from the age of 12 I have arthritis in my left hip, knee and femur. I also have a degenerative spinal disease!

Looking to make new friends with people hopefully in my area.

I am in chronic pain and fatigue daily. I use mobility aids to to live as independently as I can.
