    New to Osteoarthritis

    Hi all, I am new to this site and condition and in need of some advice and a sympathetic group to chat to. I am 52 years in 3 days time and still full of life, active and energetic as much as possible. I work part time for a company and my husband and I run two businesses from home. I had a car accident in December last year where I was left with a shoulder injury and under the circumstances I thought my car had come off second best, being written off (the other driver was unharmed and her car had just a little dent) Little did I know that 7 months later an xray would show my injury has developed post traumatic osteoarthritis. I only found out yesterday and am coming to terms with the fact that I may be stuck with an aching shoulder for the rest of my life. All advice is welcome in how to keep from becoming down and depressed and to manage this condition to keep living life.
