Hi lol,
I am sorry you have been so unwell. I hope you get sorted soon. Nothing worse than not sleeping at night. Lets hope you get the dose right so you don't have to go on the injections. Keep your chin up.
I sit in the sun as much as possible it just warms the bones up. I'm sure it is just wishful thinking.

My feet are so painful and my back is getting worse. I have had spinal surgery. I had a CT scan before Covid and I now have 5 discs gone. They are not looking to do any more surgery. To be honest I have had so many surgeries over the years I don't want anymore. I say it's my age I am 71 now.
I lost my Mum last year the first anniversay is coming up on the 26th of this month. It is tough.
Do you remember Lucy she caught Covid last year about september time I think. She was keeping in touch she was in ICU on the strong oxygen. Then no more messages and haven't heard from her since. Bless her.
There is only really Colin and myself on here now. It is a shame the forum isn't the same at all.

It is so nice to hear from you again.
Let me know how you get on with that shoulder
Take care xx
