Hi, I'm Renee. I live outside Columbus Ohio. I was diagnosed with SLE 12 years ago, but had it for at least 10 years before that. I also have some of the things that often come with lupus -- fibromyalgia, Sjogrens, Raynaud's, etc. I found this board while trying to search for an obscure symptom, and sure enough, it was on your board, with informative responses and links. Thanks for being here! :D

Hi Renee,

So nice to have you on board. Like you I just sorta "fell" into this wonderful site. There are so many caring people, people with a lot of knowledge, a lot of experience...and it's a great place for encouragement.

Our incredible moderator, SaySusie will be by to introduce herself. It always seems she's an "endless source of information"....not to mention the multitudes of caring people. I promise, you will gain inspiration here from so many - who have learned to live with this disease and they still hold their head up high - and have become mentors for me.

So, thanks for stopping in - I hope you'll stay; this is a great place to find comfort, caring and we even laugh a little now and then :lol:

Welcome, new friend.

Much love,
