Woman, 60, arthritis
She has arthritis of her left hip an knee. She has stitching pains < walking and exertion.
It started after a period of worry about her husband. He had an apoplexy and was handicapped. He could not stand it as a sports woman and became more and more depressed and listless, without being to talk about it.
It was very heavy for her as she could not give him pleasure or happiness. It took away her freedom to go out, she felt bound.
She likes to travel, with friends and go out. She loves her freedom that she regained after the death of her husband.
In her youth she was the youngest and was given very much by her five older sisters. She had little contact with her parents.
She worked in the company of her husband, doing the administration.
