Hi, just joined, thought I would introduce myself.
Have had RA for two years now, started while I was away on holiday and thankfully diagnosed really quickly by my GP and was on meds within 6 weeks. Started on methotrexate and hydroxychloroquine, which sort of worked but had recurrent pain. Now on Imraldi, injecting every other week and its amazing! I was really unsure about having to administer my own injections but fairly straightforward and the results are really worth it.
Wanted to share because when I was first diagnosed I was really shattered and thought the worst, including having to give up a job I love. There are bad days but the medications are always improving it seems and I guess we can help each other by providing a ray of hope.
Sadly there is no support group in my local area, would really value the opportunity to meet others on the same journey.
