Please can you tell me i f their are any forums for the partners of people living with Arthritis. I found one for parents of children but i cant seem to find one for partners. Thanks x
There isn't a separate one but you can post in any of them as your other half is inflicted.
Hi Helena, I expect there are others on this forum in your position, and the rest of us may be able to share some useful info, or a sympathetic ear.
If you are new to the Online Commnity Forum then I would like to Welcome you. There are other members that have partners with arthritis. Even though physically if affects one person, emotionally it can affect a family or a partnership.
Sometimes it is difficult to know what to say and what you think is the right things turns out to be the wrong things and all hell breaks lose.
The Helpline number is below for those that wish to speak to some 0800 5200 520
There is also the Versus Arthritis Website which you could look up information regarding your partners arthritis or even how to deal with depression etc https://www.versusarthritis.org/
There are also other forums that can help with depression aswell. Don't ever feel you or your partner are alone. Feel free to come back and post anytime.
