Hello, my name is Karen and I am a sufferer of RA.
I have only just diagnosed with RA but suffered with Palindromic arthiritis about 8 years ago but then it disappeared and then returned last year when I pregnant with my little girl. After x-rays and blood tests they have finally told me that it is RA.
I am married and have two children, a little boy who is 3 years old and a little girl who is nearly 10 months old.
So hope you dont mind if I join in ??

    Hi Karen

    Welcome! I am sorry to hear your story.Life must be hectic with two little ones. Mine have flown the nest but looking after our 1 year old grand child wears me out in a lovely way, if you know what I mean. Looking forward to hearing more from you on the other zones. We all try to help each other the best we can and are good at offering support too.

    Luv
    Elna x

    Hi Karen welcome to the site. It must be tough having RA with 2 little ones! Such a lovely age though, great fun.

    Hope you are having a good day
