Hi I have been recently diagnosed. 2018 has been a horrible year. I finally got help after a horrendous fall down the stairs where I broke a bone in my lower back. I now live in constant fear of falling again. The anxiety has taken over my life so really struggling. I finally started physio this week and hoping it will help to get up and moving again. I have an amazing supportive family but still feel very alone at times.

Hi Raz
Thank you for responding I am not very good at small steps and always seem to focus on what I can’t do leaving me feeling sad and worthless. I think it’s something I am going to have to work on.
