Thanks for the friend add, I added you too. And let me be the first to write on your page and welcome you to Spark People! It's been a long time coming, but I am realizing how much I am worth taking care of and loving and I just want you to know you are worth it too! I think we have listened to negative thoughts so long we forget how beautiful we are. You are so much more than your physical condition even though it must feel like it rules your life. My back arthritis isn't as bad as what you are suffering, but I think I understand. Please let me know how I can help you and support you. Have a good day my friend!
