hi there everyone.
I just wanted to express how brilliant this concept of community this is!
I have joined only very recently, and decided it was time to do so.
I have been suffering with JIA/RA the majority of my life. (im 25, diagnosed at 18months old - and have experianced many difficulties along the way)
My biggest problem was that i could not identify with anybody else, nobody else knew exactly what I was going through... as you can imagine, this has led me down a difficult path... but this is now changing because of this site.
so, in short.. im looking forward to seeing your posts/questions and stories, because, you never know.. you ladies and gents could be making a MASSIVE impact on my understandings/problems/decisions/routes to control my horrid disease.
my confidence in living with RA is already improving (- look I joined a specific community!!! ) - therefore I thank you, andlook forward to reading your posts!
all the best,
