    Hello, from England! It's lovely to meet you but it's a shame you have had to find us. I have psoriatic arthritis plus osteo too which isn't much fun but I get on as best I can. Your English is far superior to my Italian so please, do not apologise. Ciao! DD

    You are correct, we all struggle with our versions of this disease but I am very happy to read that Enbrel has worked for you. Please keep in touch with us, we may be separated by country and language but we all understand pain, and the difficulties that brings, so if we can help we will.

    I wish you well. DD
