Hi,

I was reading the press releases about arthritis an noticed there was an online forum. I am 27 (for another 2 weeks :P ) and have had RA since I was 24.
I got married 2 years ago to my very supportive husband.
I am looking forward to talking to others with Arthritis and finally talking to others who understand what it is like.

I won't waffle on any longer. Look forward to chatting to you all.

    Ey up chuck, welcome to the forum.. It's a brilliant place for advice, info etc.. Questions on arthur itis are best posted on the living with section, the chit chat section is the fun bit, there is a virtual cafe where everything is calorie free, lol..
    We are a friendly and knowledgeable bunch....

    Nice to meet you..

    Be well :grin:

    Hello dibbler, it's nice to meet you. I am sorry to hear that you have been affected so young, my version of this rubbish did not start until I was in my late 30s, which is a tad more reasonable! It's good to hear that you have a supportive other half (OH) that can make such a difference to mattters. I hope you are having a resaonably good day today - I noted your sleeping bag tip on LWA, I am sure that someone else will find that helpful. I look forward to seeing your name here and there. DD

    Hi dibbler,
    How have you been? I really had no idea how many people are affected by arthritis and so varied in how it affects every one untill i went on this site.
    Hope you have had a good weekend,
    All the best

    Hi Dibb, nice to meet you, (BTW im rubbish with names too) glad you found the site, i only found it myself a couple of weeks back and it's great. As suffers ourselves (diagnosed RA 2006) its the best plce to have a rant or ask questions, no-one has told me to jog on yet to be fair, and i ask some ridiculous questions lol :grin: but hey someones gotta do it!!

    I hope you enjoy the forum as much as i do

    Take care

    gentle hugs
