    Hello Claire and welcome to the forum. What sort of arthritis do you have? Mine's mainly RA but I have OA too. I hope you'll find us helpful and informative.

    Hello piggy, I like the username. :wink: I'm an old hag who has PsA, OA and fibro and have been like this for some time now. We are all in different boats but they share similarities, viz. pain, tiredness, flares, swelling, side-effects, more tiredness and so the merry-go-round goes round. I hope to see your name here and there soon. DD

    Thanks to everyone for such a warm welcome. Have been feeling out on a limb so to speak (pardon the pun) :D ...As like you all I have found this very hard to come to terms with but even just reading the messages from you so far has lifted my spirits as I realize I am not the only one...I have OA in neck and lower back and its rapidly getting worse so I joined the forum for moral support and make friends on the way :D

    You are not alone, Claire – if only :lol: Seriously, it's a rubbish disease but, if you have it, this is a good place to be. We do the serious stuff (mostly) on Living With Arthritis and the non-arthritic and non-serious stuff on Chit Chat. I see you've already been over there. I hope you'll stick with us :D
