Hi there, I'm new here and thought I'd introduce myself. I'm a busy mum of three boys. I've had RA for 10 years, diagnosed after birth of my first son. Struggled on and off over the years but in continuous flare for over a year with more and more joints/organs involved. Have tried various drugs but nothing really helping so trying dietary/lifestyle changes and see if that helps. Have had to give up work and exercise (running/cycling) and quite housebound. Along with the pain all over I just feel quite frustrated with this disease and cut off and lonely as I can't keep up with my friends anymore and although people mean well they don't really understand RA and what it really entails. I'm just looking to connect with other sufferers for support and understanding and particularly other mums who find parenthood challenging alongside dealing with RA. Thanks for reading!
