    Hi @Barraldo78

    This forum is a godsend. I have found a place where people understand. I have genuinely found this more helpful than my gp practice.

    I had no idea how many arthritis's and MSK conditions there are.

    Everyone's so friendly and supportive.

    It gets me through the days when it all feels too much.

    Look forward to hearing from you again soon.

  • Hi. I have been following your site for a while now. But this is my first post. I must say that i am not much of a joiner and usually wouldn't be doing this. But i have found that not a lot of people understand what arthritis can do.

    Earlier looking at your posts. I saw a letter that perfectly describes what I am feeling. Not all the time but some.

    So I thought I would take the plunge and join you.

    Hi @LorraineG61

    Welcome to the versus arthritis forum. 

    It sounds like you’ve been considering joining the forum for some time and have now decided to, as you say, take the plunge. Well you’re very welcome and I hope you find participating a very positive experience. 

    When someone joins it’s useful to share a little about your background, for example, the type of arthritis you have, your symptoms, medication etc. As much or as little as you want to share.  

    You may well have already visited our website but if not then this link may be of interest: 

     I hope you find the joining us beneficial. 

    Best Wishes
