Hi, my name is TuftyLindz!
I'm 60, live in Wales with my hubby and our cats, I love crocheting and I'm doing as much as I can to exercise most days, including my first swimming lesson. I have osteoarthritis and live with depression and anxiety. On the outside I look well, especially since attending a three week pain management programme two years ago, there I became more positive and learned that exercise can help me feel better, even though it doesn't reduce my pain levels. Because I look well, many people don't realise just how much pain I'm in, to be in contact with others who suffer like me and can understand will be a relief.
