To get off my chest

I was born with no left hip and got a steel pen and struggling my whole life with pain. I don't know how it is to go through one day without pain. Wish I could have had a normal childhood to play but couldn't enjoy the full experience. I am now 33 years old and the arthritis is so bad I can't even wash dishes without constant pain. I must get a hip replacement through the goverment and are on a waiting list of 3 years. Just wish the pain would be bearable even just for one night.
