    Hello cheekygirl, it's lovely to meet you and I empathise with what you are going through: I too have PsA (psoriatic arthritis) which has led to OA in my knees and ankles: currently life is pretty troublesome pain-wise etc so I have spent today marooned on the sofa. As the years have passed I have become a great deal better at asking for help simply because it helps ME. It seems that I am asking more and more people (often complete strangers, usually in supermarkets!) to reach things, undo things, shift things from A-B as my abilities lessen but hey-ho, it saves my joints, saves me extra pain and discomfort and to my mind that is a good thing! Household chores are now taking longer and longer but at least I am still cooking, washing, doing the odd spot of cleaning - about the only thing arthritis and its pals give us is more time to do less and less. I hope you are feeling as OK as you can be today. DD

    Lovely to meet you also, I have just joined this website. I am 42 years old, have had psoriasis for 12 years and was told that I will eventually get arthritis, gout flared up in the past month or so and I my joints are very tight and sore, I am new this and have been very depressed in the last month or so. On a bad day I can't write nor wipe my bottom but it is very hard to share this with my family and am trying to cope on my own. I just got off the phone, I called the helpline on this page. I understood so much from our conversation and hope to understand more from talking and sharing with you all.
