    Hello, basically i have had knee pain for 5 years it has been very debilitating because i have been unable to walk very far. Basically i have also been havin pains in my feet and my orthopedic surgeon suggested blood tests to test for arthritus. IDk but this really annoys me so much, i mean i'm 18 i want to be fit and healthy.

    I see physios all the time why can't i be normal??

    I feel like a cripple school havent let me on trips abroad because of it as i would be unable to take part. I don't have a social life but i get top grades....If i go out with people i feel terrible cos i limit the distance they can go..and if i have a g.f we can't go out for long walks n to places far away i feel like an invisible wheelchair is needed with me as i feel like such a burden on girlfriends...

    And after putting disability on my ucas like my teacher reccommended people laugh at me for being disabled...


    WHy can't i be normal, there must be something in this? A reason?

    surely they're only messing? like ^ said, you just have to get on with it, it could be a lot, lot worse, you might not have brains then you wouldnt even be going to uni? I know someone who died of cancer at my old school, it was really sad because he had so much to look forward to and such a will to live

    Do something about it. See every doctor and specialist until one takes you seriously and gets your knee pain sorted.

    Once you have exhausted actually doing something about it you can either be knee-painless or get proper support and learn to live with it.

    A few years ago I came out of a messed up friendship with someone I'd been best friends with for 3 or 4 years. He began to treat me a bit like dirt to the extent where I was aggressive to my family for no reason, so as soon as i got the opportunity I let him know. Afterwards I was extremely scared, in case he was going to kick me in or something, so everyday I became extremely nervous. Then, as a new years resolution I decided to look at the positives in my life. This resulted in me being one of the most happy chappy in school (I became known as the kid who never stops smiling). What I'm trying to say is ignore the bad bits in life and enjoy the good bits more. I found if your happy on the inside, the joy burst out and surrounds you and who's around you.

    I hope this helps,

    I do, i see a specialist who is good, but there is no surgical option.

    I've been going from doctor to doctor to physio to osteopath to homeopath for 5 years. I think i;ve found a good physio and doctor now though.

    I've been spending 2 hours each day for just over a year so far doing physio exercises n stretches.

    I am doing something about it....

    How bloody condescending of you, what makes you think i am not doing anything?

    Don't judge a person till you've walked 8 miles in their shoes.

    You sound just as bitter as me. So you can't walk very far. There are far worse problems to have. Why this? Why that? Stop asking stupid questions and do some real thinking. Every moment of life is a fork and you have the power to take either choice at that fork.

    Watch that video. So you got a bad knee eh? These guys can't use their legs but do they look as if they're on a forum complaining about it? No. They said **** YOU to life and kicked some ass in the process.

    Clearly its not lupus.

    Also wanna point out:
    - everyone thought it was bad-ass when I walked around with a walking-stick / crutch (like house) after I blew out my knee.

    Of course there's always somebody worse, but thinking about that doesn't make it better obviously otherwise no counsellers or similar would ever needed to help people....

    And i have bad knees not knee so get it right. And that video looks boring..stuff like that doesn't interest me.

    LOL at the fork, which choice would you suggest i take, what should i do differently?

    I don't think I'd manage 8 miles in your shoes. Since your apparently the most afflicted poor soul in existence.

    That's right, lash out at someone giving you realistic advice. What did you expect?

    I told you what you can do, see every medical expert/specialist until all options are exhausted, and then either enjoy a pain free life or knowing you've done everything you could, try and learn to come to terms with it.

    Get over yourself, really. There are people who are paralysed yet they carry on, people who suffer some really painful chronic diseases/disabilities and they try and come to terms with it and carry on.

    I'm done with you though, if all you want to do is whinge about it then fine but don't expect sympathy either.:nopity:

    Edit: *looks up*

    Lol wut?

    Two separate anon quotes of my post, two distinct attitudes. Oh lawd...

    It's something you have learn to deal with. There's no point being annoyed, cos realistically what can you do about it? You can't stop yourself being disabled. Maybe you can't do things other people can but that doesn't mean you can't enjoy life, so there's no reason to be bitter. I'm disabled and I can't swim, can't do things like rock climbing or go karting. I've had to turn down offers from friends or trips because of it. It bothered me at the time but you deal.

    People will not laugh at you for being disabled. Why should they?
