    Fantastic to see more blogs related to living with arthritis from a young persons perspective. When I started looking for others my age with arthritis it was blogs from young sufferers that were a great help.

    I like to think of them as a beacon, a light for those young sufferers lost looking for support and a community. They certainly helped me find my way. :grin: Keep up the great work.

    Try http://www.blogger.com/ which is reasonably easy to use and a great place to start a blog. Writing a journal/diary can be very soothing, I recommend you give it a try Rhian. :smile:

    Thank you so much for sharing your blog. I've been sitting here reading it for about 45 minutes now. :) I'm 23 now and was diagnosed aged 21, I still find it incredibly hard dealing with the emotional side of things. It's been great to hear it from another young person's perspective.

    Take care from one creaky YOUNG lady to another! ;) x
