    Hello and welcome to you too @Diana62

    I see you have fibromyalgia and osteoarthritis - you’ve come to the right place since all the members of the online community have experience of living with arthritis and many have other conditions as well. Everyone is really friendly so do have a look round the different forums ( at the top right hand side of the page) and join in any conversations you’re interested in. Or you can post a question or discussion topic yourself - members are keen to share their experiences and I’m sure your experiences will be useful to share with others.

    I’m not sure how long you’ve had with osteoarthritis, but the Versus Arthritis website is a good place to start if you want to find out more about living with the condition. Here’s the general page on osteoarthritis which you might find interesting:

    I look forward to reading more about you. How lovely to be living in Cornwall!

    Welcome Diana, sorry you need to be here, but it's a great forum. I have had RA for 38 years, also OA, OP, and a load of other stuff. You'll make lots of helpful friends. 😀

    Greetings, I am in Cornwall too! No need to be tech-savvy with this forum, what I do after logging in is just click on "Recent Posts" at the top of the page and it brings up everything people have been chatting about irrespective of the subject.

    Hi everyone, I’ve not been on here for over a year now. No idea of my way around the site but I will give it a go. Anyone else with osteoarthritis and fibromyalgia?

    Mike1 - thanks for the tip about 'recent posts' - until you mentioned it I hadn't even registered that was there...
