    I'm from Essex, but I guess the great thing about this forum is that it doesn't matter where you're from you can chat and get support from people all over the place.

    I'm nearly 23 and have had RA since I was 13. I volunteer for Arthritis Care's Young People's Project in the South of England which I find really helps me to keep a positive mental attitude and means I get to speak to lots of other young people with Arthritis.

    What sort of job do you? I work in an office in London and I'm really lucky that my manager is really understanding. I get to work from home if I get too tired and am encouraged to take rest breaks etc.. Have you spoken to people at work much about your RA?

    Take care,
