This year I began working with theRAconnection, as a moderator and blogger.
If you are living with RA, PsA, OA, Lupus, AS or are a loved one, caretaker, spouse, friend etcetera, of someone you know living with these conditions, then you are in the right place!
I have been living with rheumatoid arthritis for 14 years and can ensure you the information you will find here is top of the line- I have even recommended this site to people I know.
It is free, safe, secure, and easy to use, and a great place for Community, Content, and Connection. There are more categories that are being introduced to the site as we speak such as; Osteoporosis and Woman’s Health.
In addition to this, the community forum is friendly, fully-moderated, and easy-to-use. You’ll meet other users with RA, be able to engage in conversations, discussions and more.
I’d urge you to join but if you aren’t ready to join, you can view News & Features, check out the blog or sign up for theRAConnection Newsletter to receive the latest news, useful tips, and feature articles.
