My diagnosis made me take a look at my life to see what I could easily change to stay healthy and fracture-free in the future. This was a particular concern, as I was worried I wouldn’t be able to care for my sick husband if I suffered from a fracture.
My diet is a lot better now as I eat 5 portions of fruit and vegetables every day. That doesn’t mean I never have a treat, I just don’t have as many as before.
My doctor told me that I needed to stay active. So instead of taking the car to do local errands, I walk or cycle, and I follow the exercises on fragilebones.eu.
Most importantly, my doctor has adapted the medication I take to help my bone health. Maybe it’s a figment of my imagination, but I believe that I can feel the medication working, so I follow the treatment programme closely.
