Osteoporosis is defined as low bone mass or the deterioration of bone tissue. This can increase your risk for fractures of the spine, wrist, and hips. Fractures can occur all over the body, but these areas are where bone mineral density declines first, and most rapidly.

If there were a blues song about living with chronic bad health, I bet mostmaking good decision with unpredictable health people wouldn't sing about 'love gone bad'.   No doubt, holding onto relationships is hard with chronically bad health.  I've worked with people who blame illness for failed relationships and there's much to be said about that.
