Hi everyone!

Im Kirstin and totally new to this forum!

I've had arthritis since I was 5 but diagnosed when I was 8, been on many different things but not on an Anti-TNF that seems to be doing the trick at the moment (fingers crossed)

Just a note to folk - I am part of the Scottish Arthrits"Joint Potential" programme that is being run by Arthritis Care and is happening at the moment! Its all very exciting and will be a massive success!Its basically about people who have arthirits coming togethere and being contacts for younger people with arthritis! If you want to know more log on to.!

Better go home now - speak soon!

K x :)
