Hello all. I'm not new to arthritis as I've had it over just over 25 years.

I seem to be collecting different types which started with cervical arthritis, oesteo arthritis & palindromic rheumatoid arthritis. Plenty of pills to take plus various pain aids.

    Thank you for the welcome.

    I'm collecting arthritis slowly, even my partner has various forms too so we share heat pads, cool packs, gels, groans & grinding joints. Lol

    We also have to sometimes help each other up. At least he understands it all.
