RosaFlor -Thanks for posting about the independence issue. That and pain are two things that can put someone into a state of fear when they receive a diagnosis of osteoporosis. And, I do not really think that doctors address these issues. Perhaps it is not in their job description?
So that leaves us to try to deal with it ourselves , some will seek an outlet to share/deal with their fears, and/or seek counseling.It is of course on thing to deal with the fear of dependency and then another thing to be living it. Everyone will deal with it differently and hopefully find their own way. It is really wonderful to have access to healthboards to share.I welcomed you on another thread where you talked about your reclast experience. But welcome again!
DesertBloom- I went back and saw that you indeed were not the one to first mention independence and thought I would correct the message . Thanks!
