The more I do the worse I hurt. I'm retired, so the main thing gs I do is cook, clean, grocery shop and go to dr. appointments mainly with my chronically ill husband and do things for him
Can only walk long enough to shop at one store at a time. Used to be able to shop all day. The less I do, the less I hurt, therefore I don't do much.
