Lovely sunny Sunday morning so went for a walk with OH around Graveney Marshes on the Swale Estuary near us.So peaceful and atmospheric!
Walked for nearly two hours and covered about 3 and a half miles .......
all without the aid of my a stick,furthest I've walked since having a new ankle last year.Felt really chuffed........ :)
Talking to OH and mentioned methotrexate at which a couple in front of us suddenly stopped and the lady on turning round asked if I was a fellow RA sufferer.She was on MTX and Rituximab infusions and though apparently quite mobile was expecting to have to have knee replacements.We chatted for a few minutes and shook hands before parting.It was nice to meet and chat to a fellow sufferer and of course I mentioned and recommended the AC site.

    Perhaps we start the felowship of Arthritis.

    Hi Ron
    That is brilliant new, I remember when you first joined us, and was waiting to have your ankle operated on, you really have been an inspiration, and may you carry on enjoying those walks...a I must say it sounds like a lovely place.
