ABOUT ME:

Patient advocate and blog writer with osteopenia.  I started out with established osteoporosis, which was detected at 32, and improved my scores greatly with Forteo. My main primary causes of OP are family history and early non-surgical menopause.  My education was in Law/Paralegal, but had to give that up due to a severe auto accident that fractured my spine.  Many surgeries followed due to 6 additional spinal fractures.  I'm also a care-giver to my husband who is substantially disabled.

 

I like to keep up on new treatments by researching osteoporosis through clinical trials and medical articles from many bone and mineral metabolism and osteoporosis associations.

 

I'm also a group leader at the National Osteoporosis Foundation, reaching out to those with this condition who need help and support navigating this disorder at many ages.
