Hi my name is Karen, I’ve just turned 50 and very overweight. This in turn has caused me to hate myself, I can’t look in a mirror or even a shop window as I walk pass it. I have today been diagnosed with osteoarthritis which is giving me a lot of pain, I also suffer with anxiety and depression. So after my diagnosis today I have decided today is the day I turn my life around. I don’t have close friends or family for support, so hope I find support here.
