    Hello Jane - and welcome to the forum! I only joined recently and have found everyone really helpful and friendly. I too have RA so I can really understand your struggles and I know you will find lots of support here. The "Living with Arthritis" forum is a good place to ask for or give support on specific matters and the "chit-chat" forum is well worth visiting for all sorts of (mainly) non-arthritis chat. We also have a "cafe" thread in the chit-chat forum where you can pop-in for a cuppa and a chat - and the cakes are scrummy! So, a warm welcome to you.Tillyx

    Hi Jane,
    I was diagnosed with R.A at 36. I felt so young and alone at the time and of course there was no Arthritis care forum in those days to chat to likeminded people. Just had to muddle on through.Hope you will post on the other threads and get some answers to the many questions I am sure you have,
    Regards
    Elizabeth
