Hi. I'm new today and I can't tell you how happy I am to have found this site. I have RA and hypothyroidism. It will be such a relief to talk to others who understand the RA language.

    Hi sweetestapples!

    Welcome to the forum. I have OA and have taken thyroxine for years and years. :roll: :)

    You will make lots of good friends on here, it can get addictive, so be careful!! I should not be on here at all really, but doing other things that are far less interestin like, what to have for dinner!

    Look forward to seeing your name around the forum,

    Look after yourself,

    Luv

    The happiest people don't have the best of everything. They just make the best of everything.

    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.

    Thanks Trisher. Reading lots of the posts is such a revelation. I read something and think 'Oh, that is just like me' or 'I know exactly what you mean'. It is like wandering into a country and finding that everyone speaks my language. I don't feel so alone now

    You will be understood on here, I have RA as well as other types of arthur, as we call it.

    Lots of peeps on here suffer with it.

    You don't have to feel alone at all any more.
