hello my name is davina and i am 30 yrs old.
i have had RA for about 18 months, diagnosed June 2010 after tests
i am a full time mum to my very active 22 month old after not being able to work due to the RA, i worked as a waitress and as everyone know working on your feet and holding plates ect.. is very difficult so my employer has dismissed me on capacity's issues
due to my RA i am now using crutches due to my knees and the RA is disabling me and getting worse
but i do try sooo much with my son and go to playgroups which he needs and people there are very helpful and i think every parent should try as much as i do (especialy when they are able to)
i have been taking meds which have done nothing to help so now i'm starting embrel next week which is very scary!
anyway this is a little about me and what as been happening
hope i will make some good friends and get good advice
