What's Your Story?

We recently asked our supporters to share their story with us, so we may better understand how we can help you.

This is Gail's story.........

What does arthritis mean to you?

Pain and unbelievable tiredness! Not being able to lead a normal life and the impact it has on my family and my overall health.

What would you like to spend more time doing?

Walking, gardening, being able to stand and take photos and do my cooking.

What would you like to spend less time doing?

Laying down

What would you like to spend more time doing?

 Being able to get up and be functional.

What would you like to spend less time thinking about?

The one thing you have with arthritis is plenty of time to think and get frustrated at how little you achieve.

What is your experience with the Arthritis & Osteoporosis Foundation?

Fantastic! What Daniel has managed to do in the pool, so that I just love my time being in the pool and being able to move. I feel so free and alive in the pool, it's great! The lovely ladies in the cafe, the books as well as the great staff!

What service or information not currently provided would you love to see available?

Maybe, (if rooms are available) we can have days where we can be helped with the problems we face every day. For example, cooking demonstrations on ways to change how you cook, craft to keep you busy and distract yourself from your isolation, computer lessons and photography.
