Hello :)

Hello everyone I have finally taken the plunge and decided to join NRAS and the community. I was diagnosed with RA & Fibromyalgia in October 2011 whilst undergoing chemotherapy treatment for Breast Cancer. Life is a struggle with my mobility issues but I continue to smile and remain as possible as I can but I must admit to be short tempered at times and having days when I cannot get myself up and need a day of rest in bed and I won't feel guilty for it! So glad to be here with you all and hope that I can offer support and advice as well as a few laughs a long the way :)

Addendum: Just saw Stalbridge Cancer And Recovery Support (SCARS) ( scarscancersupport.co.uk/ ), Madfordogs. 👍👍 [Merely idea 💡 if SCARS is interested, an online community/ forum can be created ( healthunlocked.com/start ) under HU (HealthUnlocked) umbrella ☂ . . . .🤔💭 [Could be pretty nifty way for members to communicate & keep in touch in a ‘forum format’ if they wished?! 😃👍👍 (Merely idea. 😌 ) Gawd bless you 😇 for the work you do, Madfordogs. 😌 🙏 👼 Much, much appreciated. 🙏 ) Aside: There’s also a Fibromyalgia forum ( healthunlocked.com/fibromya... ) with some lovely, supportive folks as well. 👍👍

Hi Madfordogs - Welcome to the forum that you never wanted to join, but that you will find helpful nonetheless. Feel free to have a whine and a day in bed if it makes you feel better. We won't mind, and in fact will probably join you.. =)
