    On my first visit to Rheummatology Department as i was about to leave the Consultant gave me the booklets to read.

    As at that time I had two different arthur's he gave me those to read.

    When they diagnosed with another arthur a few weeks later he gave me that one to read also.

    When I go for appointments, I see the consultants also the other doctors give new patients them as well.

    I wish that GPs would make people aware of this site, and the help and support to be gained from it. I have made sure there is a poster up in my surgery because it was purely by accident that I found out about it.

    Joan what a great idea, my mum has diabietis and told me she had joined a forum to get advise and I thought maybe I should look for one about arthritis. So got on the tinterweb and found AC, and what a godsend it has been.

    I googled arthur and ended up on another site. They were all fighting and argueing(You think this site is bad!) and somebody mentioned a good site called AC forum .And so very good advice from Emma or Vicky (cant remember which of those two names it was) and thanks go to her.

    @ 15 years ago when Arther first started stalking me I found AC -not had any involvement since my condition improved but not that Arther is winning I just asumed AC must now be ont'net and here we are!

    I found web page by googling but didn't see there was a forum. When I phoned the brilliant helpline for advice they also told me about the forum.
