    Hello Margaret @Marge63

    A warm welcome to the Versus Arthritis online Community.

    I see from your other post that you have Osteoarthritis in your spine and have been Social Distancing for 7 weeks.

    Although I am fairly sure you will know most of this I am attaching a link to our information on Osteoarthritis of the spine:

    I hope you find the forum useful, I''m sure you will, and look forward to seeing your posts in future.

    Best wishes


  • Thankyou

    Hi Margaret, I'm sorry to hear your arthritis and osteoporosis have affected you so badly. It's a wretched condition. I hope you're able to manage the pain at least. Do keep coming on here and sharing how your feel or what you've been doing, or asking questions. It's a great place to come where everyone understands how these conditions feel. I hope you can at least spend a bit of time outside in the fresh air when weather allows, even if it's just sitting in the garden watching bees and sparrows. They give me endless entertainment, and it's a good reminder that however rubbish we're feeling, however little we're able to do, we're all still part of this amazing planet.
