    Hi Littlebird

    A warm welcome from me.

    This is a very friendly place to come to. I have made so many friends on here.

    We all try to help one another with advice or tips.

    32 is young to have arthur but there are many mums on here with young children who have it. I never knew that until I joined here. Arthur stikes at any age.

    If you have any questions post them on the LWA Forum more peeps will see it on there.

    We also have the CChat Forum, where we have a cafe, why not pop in for a cuppa and a natter.

    Well I hope to see you posting soon

    Love Trish xx
