    Hello @Jackiem

    Lovely to meet you and welcome you to the Versus Arthritis online community.

    Slow typing is a problem many of us have who use this forum, but you did fine 🙂

    Please do tell us a little about yourself if you feel comfortable - maybe what type of Arthritis you have or ask any questions you might want to.

    The members are very supportive and will help if they can.

    Best wishes

    Hi Jackiem,

    I’m a very slow reader, so we should get on famously. 😉😉😐️

    Thank you everyone ❤ and Hello .
    I'm not sure what kinds of different Arthritis I've got. Feet], so that I can walk I have to wear orthotics all the time (well except in bed)😁

    Greetings, I am riddled with OA as well as a spinal condition. Use crutches around the house and a wheelchair anywhere else.

    I have psoriatic arthritis in my toes, knees, fingers and elbows, OA in my ankles, knees, hips, wrists amd one shoulder plus fibromyalgia which is the rancid cherry on the rotten cake and mouldy icing. Fun it is not but it is what it is. DD
