View Full Version : Introducing myself

Hi... I'm new around here... and just wanted to introduce myself.

I'm happily in mid-life--empty nest and all that--hubby and I are delighted to have our daughter all grown up and on her own.

We're active in our church, and enjoy technology. We've been into computer communications since the old echo-mail days of BBS's.

New in our life is this diagnosis of lupus. I've been "officially" diagnosed only in the last week or so. I've been thru the usual array of doctors visits, various tests, multiple consultations in several medical specialties. I have SLE, Sjogren's, and to make things interesting, high blood pressure, mild diabetes, and a history of idiopathic anaphylaxis.

There's no local support group in my city--maybe there'll be one someday--in the meantime, I'm looking to the web for support.

Thanks for hearing me out.
