Hello everyone, I'm very new to all of this as my arthritis is causing me a lot of pain and mobility issues. I need to get mobility help but it seems the system thinks I'm functioning fine although most days I'm trying to work through the pain and keep going...its getting very difficult!

    @Tasha71 Hello and a warm welcome to our online community, how are you keeping today?

    When you say you need help with your mobility, do you means in terms of medical help or financial support? Also, are you under any services to help with your pain? If you could give us a little more detail, that would help us to better help you  :)

    Arthritis is a hard one to manage and I hope your pain levels will ease soon. I know it's not much consolation but many of our members have arthritis too who will be able to relate to your story. If you have time, please feel free to have a browse of our physical and neurological impairments category and see if anything resonates with how you feel. 

    Take care and do keep us updated.
