Hi 👋 I was diagnosed in April last year with inflammatory arthritis so everything is still quite new and I’m still adapting to my diagnosis, just thought I would say a quick hello.

    Hello @Lyndsayelizebet

    Lovely to meet you and welcome you to the online Community from me too. It's a scary time when you are first diagnosed isn't it?

    I have had a similar diagnosis for a few centuries now so more than happy to help with anything if I can. Otherwise just join in take a look around and either join in a thread if you have something to say or even just offer some sympathy it all helps when you are the person getting the replies.

    Take care and I hope you'll decide to hang around.
