I am retired with generalized osteoarthritis probably genetic. It is given mostly to the women of the family and the men rarley if ever get this form of arthritis. It is in all my joints. I use a walker for mobility although it does not really stop me too much. I drive, go shopping etc. I get tired more easily and in pain but I do o.k. I had my hip replaced in March and back surgery July 09. Still need the other hip done as well as knees. Life is difficult and I do get a little depressed but I am a survivor.
I have to add an update to this as this was written a while back. I have lost 25 pounds since 10/2012 and that has helped me greatly to walk. I am using a cane now 95% of the time and only use the walker to haul my groceries in and do my laundry. Both hips are now done and I am much better. I still need the knees replaced but I am doing well as is and may continue that way. MRI on back showed serious issues and my Neurosurgeon says only 50/50 chance of fixing it so we will let that go as well. I go to a chair exercise class as often as time allows and stay very busy with volunteering and hobbies. Right now life is good!!

Thanks for adding me as a friend - I feel honoured. I have added you to my own friend list.
I am fortunate in that I haven't had to do anything too much about my arthritis - yet. But my time will come, and probably sooner rather than later, now.
Have fun emoticon

¸´¸.•´¸.•*¨)¸¸.•´ ..•-~'¸.•*¨) Spark has a lot of great tools, and you will learn which ones work best for you. The best tools are the people tho, always willing to lend a hand, an ear, or a shoulder. I’ve been here for over a year now, and I still am overwhelmed, every day, by the kindness and goodness of others on this team!! That has made a world of difference for me. I hope you have the same success! emoticon emoticon ¸.•´ (¸.•´ ♥¸.•´¸¸.• (¸.•´ (¸.•*¨ (¸.¸.•*´¨`*• .¸♥.
