    Hello superbabe32. You could try looking here . You'll also get plenty of support on here from us :D
    If at first you don't succeed, then skydiving definitely isn't for you.

    Hello Superbabe

    Welcome to the forum from me too. You'll find us a helpful and supportive bunch here. Please do join in wherever you like.

    There are local support groups obviously, on the link Stickywicket has provided, if you prefer 'real-life' contact. though many of us on here have gone on to meet up with each other.

    I personally have met folks off here who will be lifetime friends and two of them live really close by.

    Hi Superbabe and welcome, though I'm sorry you've been diagnosed with RA. I felt really isolated when I was first diagnosed, as I knew no-one with RA and knew virtually nothing about it.

    Th National Rheumatoid Arthritis Society ( have a list of regional groups.
