Hi Sara Dawn welcome! I know you will love this warm forum. Don't worry about figuring out the forum, just ask how to find things if needed. It doesn't take long to figure it out with this helpful group.

Hi, Sara Dawn!
Welcome to the forum (: This is my first forum as well, and boy, am I glad that I joined. It is really a great group of people to vent to, who'll actually know what you're talking about and be able to connect with what you're saying. Unfortunately, unlike a lot of the people in our real lives.
Anyways, I hope you enjoy it here, and just wanted to say welcome!

Welcome! As others said, feel free to read messages and offer strength, comfort and/or advice from your experience. Remember that we are not medical professionals so if you read something to check with your docs about if it is appropriate for you and to remind others that you are not a professional when sharing specific info re: your meds, etc. Otherwise, start a post if you want to vent, share, ask a question or just chat. Reply to others who will be happy to have found someone with whom they share this crazy lupie world. Hello!

welcome. I am new here too and just got diagnosed with lupus 3 years ago too.

It's nice to have a support group to turn and vent to. My mother and sister also have lupus. Auto immune disorders run in my mom's side of the family.

I see that you live in Vancouver. I've been there twice because I have relatives who live there. I absolutely am in love with Vancouver and cannot wait to go back again.
