I sit here once again wiht the pain getting worse the doctors state that you should excerise every day how can you when you find it hard to walk up stairs let alone go walking for 20 mins. I try to keep active but I am so tired and find it hard to keep my eyes open. Take painkilers but they don't seem to work for long my doctor is not understanding and states that I have to learn to live with this. Only 12 months ago I could run and keep going for hours and hours I am only 52 and feel like 92. I managed over a team of 28 at work now can't manage to make a cup of tea. My family try to understand but find it hard and still expect me to be the same I find it hard to keep the mask on and keep the tears from falling. I keep forgetting things where I put things drives me mad! Sorry to go on but i feel lost and lonely sitting here on my own .
