*Please delete is this breaks any rules or is in the wrong topic - a friend recommended I shared this here.
I'm a first time poster here as traditionally I've not been very good at talking about my conditions. I had JIA from the age of 11yrs old, got Ankylosing Spondylitis at 14 and in my mid-20's developed Psoriatic Arthritis. I'm now 35.
I've had a rough 2019 with the switch to biosimilars coinciding with me becoming a first time dad and another charity and some of my Drs suggested that I write about my experiences for the benefit of others and put my energy into raising awareness whilst I adjust to not being able to do sport and so much physically as I used to.
I therefore started up a blog (https://joelvsarthritis.co.uk). Its early days but I'm always looking for feedback, stories and opportunities to promote the positive side of fellow sufferers alongside the challenges day to day...and that's where your good selves come in. If any of you would like to share your stories, promote your fundraising, write a guest post or help me create a pool of useful resources, then either drop me a message over at the blog, on Facebook at: https://facebook.com/joelvsarthritis or email me at firstname.lastname@example.org. You'd not only be helping create something that hopefully helps others out of my difficult situation but you'd also be helping me find something positive to focus my time on again.
Thanks in advance, Joel.
