What we're about

This is a group for anyone living with autoimmune illnesses in the Midlands. I started this group so that people living with chronic illness can meet and share their experiences with others in similar situations. I was diagnosed with Rheumatoid Arthritis in my early 20's and felt very alone. All the websites or support groups that I came across seemed to be aimed at people older than me and I found it hard to connect with these groups. I was trying to manage the early stages of my career, relationships and everyday life whilst living with chronic pain, a ton of medication and lack of energy. My friends and family were incredibly supportive but I felt I was missing support from people I could relate to and that would understand the everyday challenges. This is the purpose of this group- to share stories, experiences, coping strategies and socialise!
