Hi all
Havn't posted much lately been quite busy but hope everyone is as well as possible. I have some good news, I have a job! I work as a progress coach. I basically help people with barriers (health/confidence/housing etc.) to get back into work. I am enjoying it. Arthritis is still there ( what's new). But job suits me as shorter days and part time hours. Plus i love chatting to people :lol:.

A year or so ago I never thought I would be in this position so hope this gives some hope to those struggling with arthritis that things can change and with some determination/changes things are possible. Arthritis is getting suitably ignored :lol: .
How am I gonna be an optimist about this?

    The happiest people don't have the best of everything. They just make the best of everything.

    If you can lay down at night knowing in your heart that you made someone's day just a little bit better, you know you had a good day.
