    Hi Jenna

    Welcome to the site. I hope you feel a little better soon, both mentally and physically. Do join us on the other forums and ask any questions you may have. We try to give answers and offer lots of sympathy too because we do understand as we all suffer with arthur to a greater or lesser degree.

    Look forward to seeing you posting more,

    Elna x

    If you can lay down at night knowing in your heart that you made someone's day just a little bit better, you know you had a good day.
