My story

[p]Tom versus Arthritis. I’ve lived with Arthritis for a long, long time. I loved playing football, but by my early twenties it hurt to much to play. By my early 30’s I was fatigued and in pain. 5 years ago I couldn’t walk and was diagnosed with psoriatic Arthritis. Cycling 100 miles was the last of my worries, I thought my life was over.[/p][p]Thanks to a number of things, including medication, exercise, my faith, community and support, I now enjoy moving around with relative freedom, cycling to work and even the occasional mountain biking with my kids! The same kids that previously couldn’t even sit on my lap due to the pain it caused. [/p][p]I want to raise awareness about this silent killer. This intimacy wrecker. This consumer of joy. For people living pain free to want to help those who are not. For people experiencing all levels of pain, fear and extreme fatigue to know there is hope. [b]Life is not over.[/b][/p]
