    Hello 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.

    Hello 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.
