Aliza G.

Hi, my name is Aliza Gold and I am 12 years old. I was diagnosed with juvenile idiopathic arthritis (JIA) in February 2014. This has been a really rough year because I just got over two foot surgeries. I hate my life because I just started a new school this year and I already couldn't make friends well, and now it’s like I can't make any friends at all. Since my diagnosis, I have had neck pain, back pain, knee pain, finger pain, toe pain and rib pain. I am new at this so please give me some advice.

I have a few questions I hope someone can answer, so here they are:

1. Does anyone feel like they can't breathe when they are under pressure?

2. How do you control your pain?

3. Does anyone's ribs hurt a lot?
