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.

Last week I took my last autumn swim.  I don’t mind cold water but the mercury has bottomed out for winter.  With a heavy heart I have put my beloved pool noodle into hibernation along with the garden tortoises.  Fortunately the months pass so quickly. This year I will not only be looking forward to beginning my swimming season in September but our tortoise has laid eggs in the middle of the lawn so I will also be looking forward to being a granny.  In the meantime our gardener has to carefully mow a square meter border around the eggs!
