Newly diagnosed.. any advice for first steps?

Hi everyone,

Hope you're all keeping as well as you can :)

I (26, F) was diagnosed with RA yesterday evening, I'm overwhelmed and looking for some advice on where to start. I've got an appt with the hospital to discuss medication and a steroid injection and arranged an appt with my GP to go over everything but I don't know what to do next.

Is there anything that the community recommends I do or necessities to buy? Any advice is much appreciated.

Wishing you all the best x
