Hi. I’m two. I have arthritis…” Lauree had only been walking for about three months when her parents began noticing her morning stiffness. “She wouldn’t stand up in her cot. She’d cry. We initially thought it could be a hip problem,” they recall. GP visits led to a specialist consultation at Hutt Hospital and at 19 months Lauree was diagnosed with Juvenile Idiopathic Arthritis (JIA).

Your Stories

Can you imagine what it’s like not being able to open the lid of a jar of food, tie your shoe laces or open your milk? Do you have problems with packaging? Turning a doorknob? Or any other common day activity that we take for granted?

For someone with arthritis, these activities can be almost impossible, and cause pain and frustration. It can be embarrassing asking for help.

These are the stories of every day New Zealander’s that have arthritis. They come from all ages and stages of life, but all have common ground when it comes to the challenges and pain they face with arthritis.
