I was recently diagnosed around two months ago. I am 41, married and the mother of 2. Leading up to my diagnosis I was in terrible pain and agony. I was walking with a cane and only able to make it to work and home. It was bad for me because I recently began a new job and still on probation. If I called off, no pay and my finances suffered.

I just want to learn as much as possible from others and information in order to lead as normal of a life as I can. I am learning that each day is different. I must say that my husband, children and family rallied around me with great support.

Thanks for having me.[/b]
