    And, this will all be available on your smartphone or other mobile device!

    What Do You Need to Do?

    The message board you're used to will be closing in the coming weeks. While many of your boards will be making the move to our new home, your posts will not. Want to keep a discussion going? Save posts you want to continue (this includes your member profile story), so that you can re-post them in the new message boards.

I am now 41 years old, and use a cane when I have to go places because the bones, herniated disks, and collapsed feet and painful plantar fasciitis. My whole body is totally deteriorating at a fast pace, I feel as though I had Aids sometimes. it really pisses me off that I am so young and going down the chute like this.
