I just noticed I've been here for 2 years. Thank you everyone for the love, laughs, kindess and support. In the early days, I was such a mess and so frightened of everything. I've managed to develop a sense of humour,learnt that baths help me relax and eaten a lot of chocolate. I would particularly recommend the latter as a good coping mechanism. :grin:

Hand on heart, I believe RA has changed me for the better. I've become a different person, more accepting and more patient. I've also had my eyes opened to the challenges people with disabilities face. I think this will aid me well when I become a qualified social worker. Obviously, I would have preferred not to have it but who said life was easy eh?

Happy Friday everyone!
