Morning everybody!

I was diagnosed with RA in 2014, it changed my life completely. My spirits took a sharp dive and I lost something like 4 years trying to adapt to a new reality. The limitations it imposes can be severe and even the strongest of people will grapple with that. In the end, however long it takes, you do find a way of living with it. It's one of those conditions classed as an 'invisible disability' because some days you can manage fairly well, others you're struggling to lift half a kettle of water. I won't let it define me and I would love to connect with others who feel the same way. Good luck everyone, you will find your own way of living with this xx😉

    Great attitude, yes it does take time to adjust and for those close to us as well. Family find it difficult to cope with until they can read the signs better. A learning curve for us all.

    Thanks for your positive attitude it is a boost for us all.
