I have just been diagnosed with arthritis at only 16 years old. I am so devastated and depressed right now. I had plans to study medicine in the future and I feel like this has all been taken away from me. Can someone with arthritis live a reasonably normal life? Or am I going to have to rethink my future...?

Oh that’s so sad to hear! A member in my family has arthritis and he goes to work and lives his life like a normal person! Keep on dreaming arthritis can’t stop you from living your future! You can do it just believe in ur self!

You can live a totally normal life! You might have to accept certain limitations though, such as not being able to do certain sports or taking a lift rather than going up the stairs. Please do not try to continue these things if they are really painful cos it'll just make you sad, however don't let pain stop you from doing the things you want to do in life, just, adapt them slightly to make them easier for you to complete

What kind of arthritis and how does it affect you currently?

I have hEDS and unfortunately sometimes I do have to accept my limitations. But I still manage to live a relatively normal life for now at least.
