stickywicket Member Posts: 27,429Hello Yasmin. I don't think we've 'met' before. I have RA mostly and I can see that a top floor flat would be very difficult for you. I hope you can find a more suitable one soon. I also hope you won't ever have to give up your job though some people do. I guess it just depends on how aggressive your disease is. Yes, we do understand about arthritis on here so please do keep talking to us.0
tillytop Member Posts: 3,460Hello Yasmin and welcome from me too!
I am sorry you are struggling so much with your OA and really hope you will be able to continue working (and to find a ground floor flat to make things easier for you).
Look forward to seeing you posting - Living with Arthritis (LWA) and Chit-Chat forums are where most people "hang out". We are a friendly bunch and you will be made very welcome.
