In need of support

Hello, my name is Ann. I have suffered from arthritis since hitting the menopause back in 2006. I feel I have not been taken seriously and often feel very isolated - it’s as though others think moaning about arthritis is somehow amusing. Not funny at all, of course - but that doesn’t mean I want to be miserable about my symptoms; it would just be lovely to chat with someone who understands.

I know I’m lucky - hands, feet and knees only, and I do look for exercise advice. It’s that upsetting feeling of helplessness and frustration when I struggle to open that tight bottle top, etc.

So pleased to have found this community; thank you to all who run it for us :)

For now, we need to keep smiling through the relentless rain, don’t we?

With best wishes,
