    Hi Saffey,

    Welcome to the forum, just by coincidence - or maybe not - another youngster has joined today, gingerizzie, who sounds as positive and upbeat as you.

    Congratulations on keeping yourself so busy, I too love investigating my family tree - when I started there was no internet and it was a trip to London to look up the indexes of birth, marriage and death and then you had to buy the certificate to see the detail. Very time consuming and we had to ration ourselves to a couple of certificates due to cost etc. Nowadays it's a dream - and I'm still finding new ancestors as more records come online.

    Let us know how you keep yourself cheerful, join in anywhere, you are truly welcome

    Take care
    Yvonne x

    Hello, it's nice to meet you and to hear the positivity in your attitude. I am 22 years in, have psoriatic arthritis which has led to OA and fibro. I have been working with a personal trainer, go to a gym (note to self go more often!) have had art classes and am starting an origami course come September. I'm currently having a tough time thanks to the weather and despite the meds (humira and methods) but fortunately have rheumatology today which is good timing.

    I hope you find the forum to be of interest, I look forward to seeing your name here and there across the boards. DD
