I have just come across this website, my 5yr old has been diagnosed with J.I.A and would like to meet/chat with other families that are dealing with the same situation.

Many thanks

    Hi Maria

    Welcome to the forums from me. I am so sorry yo have had to join under such circumstances though.

    Here you will find a wealth of useful advice re pain management - how we all cope with arthritis, tips to solve problems etc

    There is another forum on this site especially for parents of children who also have arthritis - l don't know if you've seen it yet? I am sure they will help you enormously as well. As a parent of two kids myself one who has epilepsy and one hemiplegic migraine l know there is nothing like another parent to make you feel less alone.

    LOTS of love to you

    Toni xx

    Hi Maria,

    Welcome to the forum from me as well though I am so sorry you have had this one drop on you. It must be so hard and horrible for you and well a cyber ((( ))) for you cus its hard.

    As Toni said they have a forum here for parents and they are a very supportive lot there as is the Living With if ever you need some support your self.

    I hope your little one is being helped as much as they can and again I am sorry this bomb shell has been dropped on you. Nice to meet you. Cris x
