I'm Jen, I'm 23 and had rheumatoid arthritis since June 2013.
It started in my feet and has now started in my knee, hips and wrists.
I have tried several treatments up to now, without success but plodding on.
I worked full time but have recently had to reduce my hours to part time.
I applied for PIP and awaiting the result (they didn't ask me to go to assessment).
There are a lot of things I can't do anymore but I'm trying to focus on what I can do
. I have a lovely husband who does his best to help.
I'm going to attend an arthritis self help group in the East Midlands this Friday and I'm hoping that through that and maybe through this forum I might meet some other people who understand the struggles and achievements of living with this condition.
