I'm struggling to find any arthritis help/support groups in and around Dundee. I'd love to be able to get in touch with and, hopefully, meet up with other sufferers in my area. Are there any of you out there? :roll:

    Does across the water count? I'm new to the site and new to a diagnosis.

    Hi redhead and welcome to the forum :grin:

    I'm Scottish too..living in Lanarkshire. Unfortunately that's not near Dundee!

    I've posted the link to the AC Scotland page.. if you contact them perhaps they'll be able to tell you where your nearest branch is?

    good luck with your search!

    Thanks for the welcome Iris :P I've checked out branches of AC in Scotland but there's nothing near to me. There must be a good number of arthritis sufferers in my area though, it's just working out how to get in touch? Time to put my thinking cap on ... :roll:

    I have met several people off here you know....

    follow the usual advice when meeting strangers though - you know public place an take someone with you....??? Is there a cafe you could suggest?

    I found it really really lovely to chat to others in the same boat as me.

    Love

    Although I'm from Fife I'll be seeing the consultant at Ninewells - not sure if they might have info about support groups there?

    Thanks toni, I'd always be careful about meeting strangers, there are some weird folks about!! :roll:

    And thanks too Aisling, I'm guessing Ninewells should have some info re support groups in the area, I'm on to that!! :P
