I'm 26, so technically I'm a bit old to be posting in here, but I don't feel comfortable talking to anyone else... I've only just been diagnosed thanks to a doctor not believing I was in pain for years, but have has symptoms since a young teenager. I do have osteo rather than juvenile arthritis, but I dread the other forums not having anyone around my own age.
This is going to sound so stupid coming from someone my age, but I'm so scared and confused I kinda feel like a child again. I have so many questions and emotions surrounding most areas of my life now, and no one to ask or to talk to who will truly understand. Or maybe I'm just a wimp in not knowing/being able to deal with this? I don't know what's supposed to be 'normal'.
Sorry if this is the wrong place to post, but I really feel more comfortable with you guys than with the older adult, at least for now.
Hoping you're all on a good day today!
