My severe osteoarthritis is definitely getting worse, and visit to doctor last week where he wanted to put me on Vicodin/Morphine definitely didn't help. The depression and arthritis are definitely feeding into one another.

*Are there any active discussion groups re arthritis elsewhere on the web? Please, PM me the website.

I am feeling rather hopeless at this point, and would appreciate any suggestions. Thanks, Peace

My cat does not desert me, my cat does not judge me.

My life is not at all what I thought it would be and I am rather stunned and in shock trying to figure out what it actually is.

Paco was full of life even in the face of death. He would never pass up an opportunity to participate in, and rejoice in, life. I am remembering how I honored him the year following his passing, in saying: "What would Paco do?", and thereby finding the courage to do many things I might have passed by.

How often are you consuming dairy products?

As for your arthritis, do you often eat tomatoes, potatoes, eggplant and peppers?
