1. Calling all Lurkers / Readers say Hi
Each week we get quite a lot of new members and applicants who join up but don't make their first post. There are also a large number of non-members who come here daily to read the Community discussions as well as old Members who log in but also don't post.
As a new member yet to post why not visit this discussion and just say "Hi" 😃 Or, as an established member who hasn't posted for a while, come and join Stickywicket on the Calling All Lurkers thread. Maybe just come and introduce yourself in Say Hello. Everyone is most welcome.

Just look at the suggestions and support for How to cope with methotrexate side effects. This is why I ❤️ our Community.
