I am a nurse and although I've had diabetes for awhile, it didn't stop me from working, putting my husband and children through school and caring for our home. I always had a little stiffness, soreness from time to time but nothing a couple of Excedrin wouldn't cure. Then suddenly three months ago, I woke up with excruciating pain in both knees. It got diagnosed as osteo but Im still awaiting a diagnosis of something else as my inflammatory markers are up. Hoping to get a little support and insight from this group. I am not used to being unable to function, but I guess, who is?
Funny how you always think stuff happens to everybody else, but never you. Seeing what I see every day and the level of dependence people have scares the hell out of me. I can't go there, I just can't.
