    Oh I have just followed you- this is a great idea.
    I am 40 years of age and have struggled with Arthritis for the past few years. I'm worried if this will effect my career and what will my employees think if I can't make work certain days? Sometimes, it gets so sore I am unable to do anything even in the house.

    Hi Keeganc,

    If you are having more pain with your arthritis you might find some of our support and information on self managing arthritis useful.

    Arthritis Care's got some new Self Management programmes - see: http://www.arthritiscare.org.uk/PublicationsandResources/Selfmanagement

    and we'd particularly suggest it's worth talking to your local Arthritis Care region office - England, Wales or Scotland http://www.arthritiscare.org.uk/InyourArea

    For more information about the kind of arthritis you have do get in touch with us and we can post you an information pack: [email protected]

    Best wishes

    Guy
