    We just can't post anything that's like advertising @Tigs

    So I can tell you that I like skechers shoes and hotters too because they are comfortable and I can get my orthotics inside them but not put a link into the specific site because it's like advertising and Versus Arthritis can't be seen to be promoting anything. It's like 'talking to a neighbour over the garden gate'

    Also we have had in the past people trying to sell what you'd call 'snake oil' fake 'cures' which just waste people's money because they don't work.

    Prescription stuff you can also talk about like 'I find capsaicin really helps my joints'

    I bet that didn't make it any clearer did it? 😔 sorry
