I have been diagnosed with erosive osteoarthritis and possible psoriatic arthritis. I also have a torn meniscus (right knee), chronic bursitis of the right hip, and lumbar disintergration from back surgery 5 years ago. I cannot walk any length of time which has impacted the travel plans I had for my retirement. It now takes me a week to do chores that I used to do in a day. I also have bouts of fatigue all of which is frustrating and depressing.
