Been a long time since I've been on here, so I don't know if Richard comes on here anymore but I'll post any way. I recall Richard had a problem with Arthritis some years back after breaking a leg? I spoke to him briefly about his time in a wheelchair after his gig in Brick Lane. Thing is I now have Arthritis going on following a leg fracture and I keep thinking back to what Richard went through because there are parallels. I am a guitarist and now can't play. The Docs I have spoken to say it's likely a reaction to the break but with Covid going on I won't see an actual Rheumatologist until January. When I go on the Rheumatoid Arthritis groups on FB it paints a dark picture but Richard is out playing and walking about. I know we all have our individual stories regarding this horrendous disease but it would be great to hear a positive account of getting back to 'normal'. When you're in it, it seems like the end but the Docs say it could just go away any time.

I've got it in the neck and right shoulder, to a degree - it comes and goes, but in my case it seems to be affected by the weather. If I lived somewhere that was constantly warm I probably wouldn't suffer.

Yes, the weather gets me too.
