My symptoms are worsening by the day. I have a really hard time walking. When I take a step it feels like everything from my back to my feet are going to shatter in pieces. It hurts to walk and I can't seem to get rid of the pain. The Tylenol Arthritis is not working at all. I tried some Ibuprofen and it takes the edge off some. I am so tired of this. I want to be "normal". I keep listening to everyone else as to how to control the pain. Forgetting about the pain hasn't worked, excessive walking makes it worse. Climbing up and down the stairs to get in the building makes it worse. Sitting for long periods of time makes it worse. No hot water in the building definitely makes it worse. Nobody including my friends want to let me tell them how I feel. I feel isolated and alone.
