Im a 33 year old lass who has ha arthritis from the age of 10. I'e had both hips and both knees replaced over the years. I'm looking for people the same age to chat to as I haven't got many friends and it would be nice to chat to friends who can understand what feelings and what pain at times I suffer. Although I don't complain a lot anyone same age who feels like a chat im here

    Hi Skinny

    Welcome to the forum. There are quite a few on here in your age group and although they flit around on all the zones, some stick to more to the young people's zone. You have no need to feel lonely now that you have found us lot. We all know what it is like to have arthritis to a greater or lesser degree and all try our best to help and support each other and answer any questions as best we can.

    The chitchat zone is lively and fun too, you will make lots of friends there :D

    Luv

    The happiest people don't have the best of everything. They just make the best of everything.

    If you can lay down at night knowing in your heart that you made someone's day just a little bit better, you know you had a good day.

    Hi there Skinny!

    Welcome to the forum!

    I am 33 too and have AS. I have found this site to be a great help as am sure you will. There are lots of people about the same age as us and I found it to be such a relief to see that I wasn't as alone as I thought I was with my battle against Arthur.

    I hope to see you on the chit chat zone shortly - there is always something going on there :)

    We also like to have some fun too, so you would be welcome to the Cafe on the CChat zone where you can eat anything you like or join in on any topic there
