I am 31 and was diagnosed with JIA at 2. I still have JIA as it hasn't gone or progressed into Stills, and is different from RA. I was put on biologics for the seciond time recently. I had an allergic reaction - a swelling in the site, pain, tightness and heat. I went to my rheumy - who asked me to do it again 'just to make sure'. The same thing happened again, but much much worse, ending up with me in hospital. Today my called it medically inflicted self harm. I am exhausted, teary and utterly fed up. My GP has suggested that I try and find a support group, more aimed at general fatigue and being fed up with a chronic illness rather than RA or JIA specific. Don't really know where to start. I am not able to work very much due to exhaustion, I feel like a waste of space. Sorry for the pity party.x
