It was 20th October 2013 when it happened. A fun family day out changed my life forever. I was roller skating and fell over. I’ll cut a long story short, I ended up fracturing my spine (t12) but I didn’t get the treatment I needed because I was misdiagnosed. After blood tests and X-rays it was discovered that I have osteoporosis. I’m 24 and my love of milk and dairy is healthy. They’ve got me on a vitamin d supplement and the deterioration of bones was spreading to my hips. This year my specialist told me that had stopped. For a long time I was scared I wouldn’t be able to have children or carry full term. That was my biggest fear in life. It still is. Some days I can walk for hours. Others I can’t even sit for 10 minutes without being in pain. Most of the information online is for older people who suffer with osteoporosis. So I can’t really find any help and support there.
I’m looking here for help/support/tips on how to get my life back to some normality and to stop being so reliant on pain medication.
Thank you for reading.
