I Am In My Early Thirties And Recently Diagnosed With Osteoarthritis In My Lower Back.

I am in my early thirties and recently diagnosed with osteoarthritis in my lower back. I have several other illnesses (including fibromyalgia) at the moment and have been relegated to basically "home-bound" status for anywhere from 6 mos to a year now. I have been trying to meet with doctors to get diagnoses for the last year for my illnesses. It's very difficult because I don't want to "bring others down" that aren't experiencing what I am and many people, especially family do not seem to take this or my other issues seriously. Since I am mostly home-bound I was hoping to find some other individuals going through similar circumstances and thought perhaps we could help each other through some of the difficult times...

Thanks for listening,
