Hi everyone, I'm new here.
I have recently been diagnosed with arthritis after 18 months of wondering what has been going on with my joints! I've only had one appointment at the hospital so far and have to go back in july for an MRI scan and to discuss treatment.

I'll tell you a bit about me :grin:

My name is Laura (although you probably guessed that from my username!), I'm 24. I am a full time Mum to my beautiful daughter Amber, who is 2 and a half. I'm married to my wonderful and very supportive husband James, and apart from having to live with this horrible condition, I am very happy and enjoy my life :smile:

Anyway, I'll stop there, I'm waffling a bit :lol:

Hope everyone is well and look forward to chatting to you all and getting to know you :smile:
