Hi ev1 my name is lynette my Daughter Caitlyn who is 12 yrs old has been suffering with arthritas since she was 18 mnths old. We live in West Yorkshire & it would be lovely to be able to speak to other parents whose children have to cope with this awful disease :cry:
Also if anyone has a child around the same age it would be nice if Caitlyn had someone to discuss problems with who knows what she is going through.

    Hi Lynette,
    We live in North Yorkshire and my daughter Annie, is 6 (maybe a bit young for your 12 year old)and was diagnosed back in January and we go to the fantastic team at the LGI. I assume you and Caitlyn must go there to. Annie has the Systemic form and we are just battling to try and get the right medication to keep this awful thing under control. Not feeling very chirpy tonight but welcome on here.
