Hi Becky,

Welcome to WHL.
I am very sorry for your losses. Having to go through all this at the same time must be very hard.
It is scary to deal with an illness you know nothing about. Make sure that you read alot about it, in order to understand it.
Are you on any meds for the Lupus and RA?
Do you have family around you?
Like Steve said, we are here to listen and help wherever we can.

First let me welcome you to our WHL family. I am so terribly sorry to hear what you have gone through. Lupus and RA are enough to deal with but often it seems like we get more piled up on us when we need it the least. Although there is no physical way we can be there for you we will gladly be an ear to listen and a shoulder to cry on. Please make yourself at home and look through all the old threads and start new ones if you wish. I am not around at this moment as much as normal but I do look forward to getting to know you
