I am newly diagnosed with Osteoporosis. My T scores where quite scary especially my spine. I am 64, female. I have ulcertive colitis since 23 yrs of age, have graves disease for last 10 yrs. Thyroid removed 2 yrs ago.
Now had a DEXA scan, and this diagnoses. I am so worried, feel alone, scared of my future, how I will cope, and so worried about the medications.
I also feel now I have no purpose because as of 2 weeks ago and the diagnoses my life as I knew it has skidded to a halt. I am afraid of bending, of picking anything up, etc. The research of this disease I have been doing is so depressing as nothing looks good or hopeful!
Has anyone out there been through it, have this disease, have you any advice please?
