    Welcome to the forum, I am sure you wil find support, advice, friendship and light relief here.

    I am one of the moderation team, we all have one or more arthritis 'hanger on' or look after family with the same.

    Best wishes

    I am truly sorry about your arthritic hips. 9 year olds can keep you on the go.
    Don't hide your pain from them. There may be many little ways in which they can help? I hope so. santa

    Hello and welcome from me, too.

    Arthritis plus children is a difficult combination. I did it many years ago and wouldn't like to try it again. I suggest you read up on 'Managing Arthritis', on the toolbar above. It's full of good tips and advice. It has been shown that keeping the weight down, a good Mediterranean diet, exercising regularly and not smoking all help. Also, do feel free to talk to us here because we do understand.

    Hello fellow bilateral arthritic hip haver. I don't really have too much advice to embellish on what the others have said as I'm new here too, but welcome!
