  • Hello there, thank u for joining the Forum. When I run I always thank God I CAN run because many people don't have the ability to move around. There are lots of sports now that are accessible to people of all abilities. Are there any sports u could try?

  • hi there many thanks for your reply, i used to play football, rugby, but when i was told i'd got osteoarthritis in my spine, hips and knees and i'm only 48 years old, i know there are my different things i could do, but the rest of my illness stop me from doing things any normal person would do, i think the main reason i don't bother is because i don't mix well with new people i'm not shy just a bit nervous whilst i'm face less i'm ok but its when i have to met people yet again no problem its just being in someone company that let's me down, plus the amount of times i've been reject for friendship it take a long time to recover, but then its to late you feel like your inprisoned in your own home with no friends. take care speak to you soon Alan
