I've suffered with Arthritis and Sciatica for many years and have never had anyone in the NHS really take any time to consider how this affects my wellbeing as it's made me not want to live any more at times. This service is really helping and is giving me hope for the future but I would really like to know if anyone else is living with pain and how you are coping with it because it's hard everyday. I am trying to focus on the things that give the meaning to my life and not be defined by pain and disability.
