    Hi Honey,

    Just wanted to say 'Hello and welcome'.

    I'm a rheumatoid and my sons grew up having to do alot to help me over the years. They're now in their 20's and I think it's made better people of them because they're more aware of disability and other people's needs. :D Good can often come from bad :wink:

    Luv Legs :)

    Welcome Honey!

    Well said Linda! Good can often come from bad - I have seen that happen, time and time again. Sometimes, not immediately but when one looks back one can see it, plain as plain not only for myself but for others.

    If I had not been made redundant and not had arthritis that started years ago, I would not have found this site and all the great peeps on here. I would not have had the time to befriend some great old folk in my neighbourhood nor be with my mum when she was critically ill for three months and I stayed more in her home than our own.

    You have always looked out for your daighter and at the moment, she is doing the same for you. I expect she is proud to do so.

    Hope to see you posting again and feeling more positive.
