    Dont be afraid to be active with osteoperosis

    After suffering a fracture and being diagnosed with osteoperosis I was afraid it would happen to me again. As a result I started to withdraw from the things I loved doing, for example accessing my bridge club was difficult with a large number of stairs so I gave up bridge all together and wherever possible avoided physical activity as the thought of another fracture was terrifying. My osteoperosis started to control my life and i spoke to my GP who then referred me to an exercise physiologist and psychologist- i have since learnt that I can still engage in the things i love, i just need to be more careful. I've learnt to walk more carefully and use a cane for balance. At 68 years old i didnt want to use any aids, however it got me back on my feet and i now have the confidence to carry on with the things i love.
