I know that we all have lives we live and that we all need time. Maybe I'm just being morbid this morning but I'm missing some of the old familiar names. I know they have their reasons and I don't believe any of them have let Lupus beat them.

I'm just missing them. I've not been to active myself with my bit of mess. But maybe things will look up for me again. I wish we could all meet for real but.... I know we can't. I don't know why I'm so down this am. Maybe a reaction to the MTX. Maybe my sixth sense is working overtime. I'm rambling now so I'll stop.

Here's to all our missing friends, may they stop by soon.
Amanda and Phyllis, and several more, lovedbyhim, and many more.
Hugs and good thoughts to all of them

I'm sorry you're so down Nonna. Life with Lupus really is a mess. Hang in there. I believe things will get better.

Good morning Nonna. I know things are tough right now and some of our friends are gone but just remember that you are cared about very much. You are one of the friends that would be missed terribly

Nonna, I hope your day got better. It does seem that some of the folks who posted daily aren't around much anymore. Hopefully some of the new folks will step in. Maybe the MIA members are doing so well that they are busy with other things.

I'm around but things are so crazy. Dealing with my Mom's memory loss is running me down. Also trying to work. My lupus has been going unchecked. I can't do my
appointments and my Mom's. Play fb game to try and relax.

Hi Nonna; I, too, am sorry that things are not going well for you lately. I hope that you start having better days and that this happens very soon. Please know that I will ALWAYS be here..you can go away and come back years later, and I will still be here
:-). The same holds true for many of our members.
I miss many of our old friends also. Members come and go for various reasons. Some are here and are quite active when their lives are in trumoil and their disease is out of control. We help and support them for as long as they need us. When their lives become more tolerable and their disease becomes manageable, they leave us as they no longer need our support. I am very happy to lose members for this reason. It saddens me when they have to return because things have gone south again, but I am always happy to hear from them again.
While WHL tries to be a safe place for everyone and we work very hard to provide reliable, trustworthy information, acceptance without judgement, and true care and concern - there are times when we are unable to give a member what they need or that member finds that WHL is no longer a comfortable fit for them. As such, we lose some members and sometimes it is not always a happy parting. For those members, we wish them well and pray that they find what they need and that they get relief from their illness.
The saddest loss of a member is when it is due to illness or personal crisis. While their love for WHL remains, it just becomes difficult for them to interract with us any longer. Again, we wish these members well, we pray for them and support them in our hearts and we let them know that we will be here for them, no matter what!
Whatever the reasons for the absent members, we never stop trying to give love, support, information, advice, acceptance and comfort to each and every person here and to everyone who has touched our lives here, even if for only a brief time.
So, with you, I say "I Miss You Dear Friends" :-)
I am so glad that you are back and I am sending you warm hugs..know that you are important to us also

Peace and Blessings
Namaste

Yes, I miss Terri very much and I worry about her. She was scheduled for surgery in early August.
If anyone manages to reach her by FB or whatever, please let me know.
