Yikes! Met someone last week who's had this 20 years!

Posted by Beverly on 9/10/01 at 14:32 (059738)

I hesitate to even mention this, because the mere thought is disheartening, but last week, I met a woman who's had PF for 20 years. Granted, she works on concrete floors and she was considerably overweight, but gee, I'd never met nor heard of anyone having this for so long.

I picked her brain some, and felt a little better. She said it's not as bad as it used to be. I wish I'd asked if she meant 20 years of nonstop PF or off and on. When I hear about people who have had PF for years and years, I often wonder if they mean 'ups and downs but never went away' or 'had it off and on.' I couldn't help but wonder if her life would have been different if she'd gotten off those concrete floors.

Wow, she sounds like the longest case yet. I wonder if Scott has any records on this. Can you imagine daily P.F. for 20 years. For her sake I hope she meant on and off for 20 years.

Re: ARRGHHH! - I agree!!!
