It's not too bad now - at least it doesn't hurt like it used to. The worst thing is that I can't do touch-typing because my fingers won't go into the right position.

The arthritis in my hands plays up when rain is on it's way, just aches but doesn't affect their use. I dread to finish up like my mother who's lifetime of hard work resulted in her fingers being permanently bent in the closed position
