    Hi @dez12

    How wonderful to hear from you, thank you for joining our online community, it's now your community too.

    You sound as though you have found a few ways to manage pain and your condition, it would be great if you could share some hints and tips and support in our Living with Arthritis category, you might even pick up a few tips for yourself along the way!

    I see you like gardening and doing puzzles and you have a pet, you definitely belong here! In Chit-chat we have current discussions on gardening and pets in particular, I agree with you re puzzles being great, I wonder if we could work out how to start a puzzle thread, please share any ideas so we can get one off the ground.

    I don't know if you have checked out our website but it is packed with everything Versus Arthritis. You could sign the petition, check out where our money is being spent on research or investigate some easy to use recipes.

    Then for a cuppa visit the café

    Take care

    Yvonne x

    Hello, I have psoriatic and osteoarthritis, I am now in my 24th year of it all and am 61. I am shielding because of the meds for the PsA so lockdown is irrelevant to me but I hope that it is eased for others at the proper time.

    I keep myself busy with chores, exercise and my hobbies: if my brain is not focused on the pain it appears diminished. I was always a candidate for the dross as I was born with eczema and developed asthma aged seven so the arrival of the PsA was not a surprise. The OA was, though! 😂 DD

    Have you got the despatches? No, I always walk like this. Eddie Braben
