My name is mary or Minifem lol I have worked In the medical field for almost 20 years... mostly in family practice. Call me a junky... but I love the variety of what you see on a daily basis. There is always something to be learned in the medical field, be it learning to positively identify a rash just on a visual exam. Or when your setting there with a pt and taking their history and they inadvertently are throwing symptoms at you... all the while telling you about their great grand baby. Let me just say... I LOVE MY JOB! People are so amazing sometimes, and most of us take it for granted. So, I'll get off my soap box and to the real reason I chose this site. In my professional medical opinion, I believe my daughter has Lupus... but we haven't got her in for any testing yet. And I stress the yet....lol She has an apt next week. I have hit on this site numerous times while researching signs and symptoms and real like the "feel" of this one. Thanks for having such a great site.
