Rheumatoid Arthritis (RA) is currently medically incurable. At the age of 20 I had to come to terms with a chronic condition that I knew nothing about. Although there are millions of sufferers worldwide many people do not know another person with the same condition.

Amazing technology allows me to give you a place to connect with me as well as RA sufferers from around the world. Rheumatologists do their best to explain and treat your condition but unfortunately they do not have the day-to-day experience of living with this auto-immune disease. This blog aims to give you a voice, practical help, fellowship, encouragement and inspiration for daily living. Please feel free to share your experience or to ask any questions.

I hope that you will be a regular visitor and that you will advise others of this blog.

What DO you do when the pain won't go away?  When Rheumatoid Arthritis comes it generally comes to stay.  My childhood experiences with illness were few and far between and always short-lived:  symptoms would appear followed by a visit to the doctor and pharmacist, maybe a few days in bed and before you could blink I would be back to my normal routine.  It was a shock to me when the RA pain just would not go away.
