Hello Everyone, I have just joined your group so as a polite gesture I would like to introduce myself.
My name is David. I have had Rheumatoid Arthritis for over 4 years. At first I was in denial about it, thinking that my symptoms were just attributed to me getting older. However, I have recently realised that I cannot ignore it any longer and that I have to come to terms with the medical evidence. Fortunately my body is still able to function properly, albeit much slower and with varying degrees of pain, but I am prepared for worse things to come . . .
I live by myself and don’t have anyone with which to share or talk about these things. So by joining this group I’m hoping that I won’t feel so isolated and that I can play a small part by contributing some of my experiences and listen to what others have to say. Hopefully I'll be able to give as much as I take in terms of knowledge and feedback.
Thank you and Best Wishes to you all.
