I have trouble cleaning my house because it hurts my back to sweep and mop . It hurts my back to stand and wash dishes.I can't stand or sit for any long length of time. I work at a convience store 3 days a week and by the time my shift is over my knees and lower back are hurting so bad I just want to cry.
