Newly diagnosed with knee oa

I'm struggling with my new diagnosis but im determined to be strong and keep going on with my life. I'm trying to make the right changes to help myself but I feel unsupported by my partner it's a case of it doesn't effect him so it's ok.

    It is always a difficult time getting your head round a new diagnosis but a positive attitude helps enormously so keep strong. You have to focus on yourself and it is also difficult for partners to come to terms with the changes you will have to make. Let them help you with your research, join in on this community because they are great on here giving support to everyone

    Look at the other discussions about oa and knees it is all very helpful.

    I will try to remain positive and make the changes I need to help myself I will have a look at all the discussions and advice. I guess im just feeling a bit emotional about it all.
