Sorry, think my initial attempt was a bit premature in leaving my screen. Wanted to say hi and thanks for having me. I'm not new to O.A but new circumstances now mean it's harder to deal with and I'm also just waiting to see if I've developed R.A. I'm 60 going on 25 with a quite new first grandchild. Hoping to find and give support here. Cheers
