    Hello Tracey, it's nice to meet you tho I am sorry you have had to find us. Arthritis at any age is unfair, whether you're two or fifty-two, so we all understand how you feel, believe you me! There is a fair bit of moaning on here (talking to the initiated is always good!) but also some light-hearted stuff too which balances everything out. I look forward to seeing your name here and there and I hope we can offer the support you need. DD
    Have you got the despatches? No, I always walk like this. Eddie Braben
