I - all some, do my shopping, go to church, go to church, worked until last week and dr. Put me out I was hitting so bad and was falling alot and just couldn't stand a long time and boss want to go stand in class all the time and my hips and knees were killing me. Nothing was seeming to help I was taken or doing. I've worked all my life started at 15 and sometime helted down two jobs. Now i can barley stand to get up much and walk. I hope there is Somme kind of help. I don't want to have back surgery.
