    There have been a few new people with RA join us recently - I've welcomed a couple a last week, why don't you have a look at their posts and see if you would be interested in talking with them?

    Hi @indiswami nice to meet you,

    I too have just joined the site having been recently diagnosed with RA.

    if it’s anything you want to talk about please do drop me a message! I’ve shared my story on my post but happy to discuss anything as I’m just in the stages of understanding my diagnosis and finding my feet.

    take care x

    Thank you, Shell, Lilymary and Sam. Thanks for your positive message.

    I will join in whenever I can.

    Is there a way that I can message privately?

    Take care.

    Is there a way that I can message privately?

    Yes, just click on the name of the person you want to message and their profile will come up, in the top right hand corner there is the "message" icon, click on that and hey presto!
