    For the last six months I have had horrible

    knee pain that has only gotten worse that has spread into my legs. I'm guessing it's arthritis. No pain meds help. I moved into an upstairs apartment just before this started and my lease isn't up till December when I can move. Don't know if I can last.

    I've had this same pain

    since I was only a few months old. Some days are worse than others. I've come to accept it mostly. I do have my days where I'm just so angry at having to live with this, but I'm generally ok with it. I can't change it anyway, so I might as well accept it.
