Just wanted to say hello. I've posted on the helpline page (?) but wanted to post here too. I've got seronegative inflammatory arthritis. Not entirely sure what the difference between that and rheumatoid is as my GP says the management is essentially the same. Due to go on Methotrexate in new year. Have been on steroids since August when I was hospitalised for two weeks - things were pretty bad. I lost my mother through septicaemia a couple weeks after so it's been a bad, bad year for me. Glad you are out there though.
