[/B][/B] Hello, I'm Mello . I have SLE Lupus, newly diagnosed last year after being hospitalized for weeks with inflammation on my brain (aseptic meningitis) a CVT blood clot ( minor stroke rightside or could have been the leftside, at this point, I have to rely on reading my past doctor notes and my patient history, hard to keep up with all that goes wrong with me. Umm, what else, well there is plenty of other stuff wrong with me, right now too much thinking. All I know is I am fatigued when i go to sleep and when I wake up. I joined so I could have a place to come to where I could chit chat about this and that or that and this... OMG the sitcom CHEERS theme song is stuck in my head... **singing*** Where everybody knows your name.. .. anyhow.. I'm Mello and I look forward to meeting more Lupies!!! Smooches

Hi Mello! I'm new too, but I have yet to be diagnosed. I was just referred to the rheumy last week, but I haven't been yet. Glad we both found a great place to vent and...sing, if that's what we need to do. LOL! And, by the way, thanks for getting that Cheers song stuck in my head too. :)

*chuckles* yeah, we will know your name but not sure how many of us will remember it due to brain fog!
