hi there people!!!:).Im new here and here is more about me im 29yrs,mum of 3 fab kids and unfortunately i have rheumatoid arthritis,lupus sle and gastritis.I was diagnoised with r.arthritis and lupus at the age of 19.At the time i had no idea how serious both illnesses are.I was a single mum to my eldest child and seemed to be able to cope.I then had my 2nd child in 2003,married in 2004 and during my 3rd pregnancy my health went downhill very fast.A few months later i was finally sent to hospital where they carried out many tests due to my symptons and they discovered that i have had 2 tia's (mini strokes).I am now on immunosuppressants,high dose steroids,pain relief and simvastatin.It is very scary being in such a vulnerable state and not knowing any1 in the same position.I look 4ward to meeting u all;)
