another “newbie” here!

I’m Martin a 55 year old newly diagnosed RA sufferer, have just started (today) on the Methotrexate regime.

don’t really know what to expect with it all and will hopefully be able to learn from others on here who are far more knowledgeable than my good self at this very early point on my journey (3 weeks and 4 days to be precise!) 😀

look forward to getting to know others and to learning from you all and eventually being able to offer the same to other newly diagnosed folk.

    Hi @Dexter newbie!

    Lovely to meet you. I hope you'll decide to hang around.

    Bad news though i think you only get the T shirt if you do a fundraiser for Versus Arthritis. They don't sell 'em😔

    I might be wrong, but think I remember this being said before.

    Take care
