I joined the forum a week or so ago...
This is the first forum I have ever been on so I hope I don't mess up! my son has been encouraging me to get online and is delighted that I have finally taken the plunge...
Who am I? I'm Iris... am 59 next birthday (can't believe it as I still think I'm a teenager a heart...though other bits tell me otherwise!) my family of five are all grown up and away, so it's just me and the dogs...two mad labradors...
I am lucky enough to have a twin sister, and she is lucky enough not to have arther!
I am still working.......bit of a workaholic...and just returning to work after another op; but am being told by rheumy I have to stop ignoring arther and start considering what's best..
I have PA and some OA..diagnosed 13yrs ago and like a lot of you am on anti TNF and MTX + usual painkillers.
I have posted on the forum already, responded to some... and taken a peep at the chat room but not ventured in!.
I think the forum is great...have learned a lot from your posts...and hope to get to know you....Iris x
