Hi everyone, I finally found a place full of people like me (or should I really say it found me). It can be so isolating living with Arthritis, so finding this group is amazing.
I have suffered from arthritis in my knees for most of my adult life, but since I turned 40, all of 27 years ago, it decided that it would see what it was like in other joints and liked it, so kept spreading. Thankfully it is not Rheumatoid, but living with chronic pain for 47 years is no fun. So a big Hello from me and thank you for being here.
