Hi My name is sarah and my daughter Emmie has JIA with uveitis.
Emmie was diagnosed at 2 and soon next week she will be 8 years old.
It has been a journey seeing my daughter suffer with Arthritis something that I find hard to describe. I pray every day that this horrible disease will leave our family. I feel so tired, so worried, so terrible at times, my days are always thinking how do I get rid of this problem but I can't do it.
Emmie has been on Methetrexate for 4 years, and just recently had a big flare, Cons had to increase her methetrexate and at the same time tell me she has her ankle affected now. Her main joints affected are her Knees, but has also had a toe, finger and now ankle. I am confused! I am currently trained to give Emmie her injection weekly which isn't pleasant but something that needs to be done. It is a mind game that never ends. I wish I could take it all for her so she can have more fun! sarah
