Its strange really to think three years ago i was a young women with the world at her feet, i could have gone in any direction i wanted. Now 3 years later i can not even walk to the toilet how life changing is that.

I have a condition called Rheumatoid Arthritis its a painful and tiring condition. I often dont sleep a good solid night sleep for weeks but then i can go days with nothing but sleep, it stops you planning what you can do, its funny really because i want to plan stuff for me but im scared to yet i have my 2012 diary filled with appointments and other medical related comitments!

I sat here and i though who the hell am i, i mean i no im vicky im 26 but then its i have RA not like others who say i have this job im in a relaionship i enjoy this that and the other. No im just vicky with RA thats not how i want to be known.

So i have to go on a new journey im spreading the rheumatoid story, people who didnt no about RA now have an understanding and im glad of that.

The past 6 years have been really hard and painful at times and at times i didn't see a way through but now i know im just starting on my journey and it'll be interesting to see who comes out, hopfully a very happy young women who has found herself again.

Just a final note i was 5stone 11 last week and today i weighed 5 stone 10 but i am eating and i will beat this :) x
