Hi just joined, its nice to be amongst folks with similar problems as myself.
Hope to contact some of you in the future. I'm a " mature gent (elderly) "
silver surfer who gets very frustrated with this thing called Arthritis.

best wishes,

    Hello, it's nice to meet you but I am sorry that you have had to find us. I have two kinds of arthritis, and auto-immune and the joint damage from that has led to OA so it ain't fun but it could be worse. I am going away for a few days so won't be about but I hope others say hello and that you find the forum a useful place for information and support: most people hang out on the Living with Arthritis board on here or Chit-Chat, very few look in on this one.

    I wish you well and hope to see your name here and there when I return. DD

    Hello Mike and welcome from me too :) I also am 'elderly' but still not quite mature :wink:

    There's no doubt arthritis is a frustrating business but we do get very ingenious at thinking laterally to solve problems.

    I hope to see you around and about. Please join in on any thread, anywhere.

    A welcome from me, too, Mike.

    I have OA in different places and also have hip bursitis at the moment, just to add to the fun.

    Hope to see you around the forum.

    Take care.
