Hi everyone!
I'm Sarah, I live on the south coast of England and I was diagnosed with SLE in 2004 after years of severe skin rashes in the sun ( used to look like I had smallpox!) and major joint pains after my 4th child! I've had a bad year, my mum died suddenly at the end of may and since I've been getting flares quite badly just before my period. in the middle of one now...so in need of some support.

Welcome, Sarah. I am sorry that you lost your mum. I can't imagine how hard that is, especially to have it happen suddenly. Flares just stink, especially if you have a large family to take care of. Please look around, read and respond to other posts. We are very happy to have you join us - it's a upbeat place to be, even when you are feeling low.
