Dismissive doctors?

Dismissive doctors?

Today was the 7th anniversary of me and my husband's first date. It would have gone really well, except for my arthritis. I've been in pain all day. Nothing seems to touch it. I've asked my doctor for help, and all I got was "Lose weight". Has anyone else been dismissed when they bring things like this up at the doctor's? What did you do?

What are your key words for the upcoming new year?

What are your key words for the upcoming new year?

The new year is just a couple of days away! It is time to think about what it is you want to different in your life. New Year's resolutions are easy to make but hard to keep, so instead of making specific resolutions, I am adopting key words for myself for the new year.

My words are OPTIMISM, CONFIDENCE, and FAITH. What words will you adopt?

Does anyone else here have arthritis in their back and knees? If so, what treatments have worked for you?

Does anyone else here have arthritis in their back and knees? If so, what treatments have worked for you?

The swelling is gone, but not the pain. My knees have been left untreated. The pain gets unbearable at times, but my doctor only says lose weight. I've told her several times that I'm usually an active person, but pain makes me not want… read more
