My name is Tammy and I was diagnosed with Lupus in January. I am married, have 3 kids, 8 cats, 7 dogs, 1 ferret, 2 beardies and an assortment of fish. Yes, we have 10 acres and are nuts. My animals keep me sane when I am feeling bad, which is pretty much all the time these days. I am looking forward to meeting some of you and I am so glad I found a place where someone understands what I am going through! Good night!

Hi, Tammy, and welcome - your household sounds like mine, except I have one more child, and no ferrets or bearded dragons. We have four boys, three house cats, a whole group of feral cats who have their own cat cottage, a rescued dog, welsh giant rabbits, goats, ducks, geese, a barn owl, and an everchanging assortment of foster pets or orphaned wildlife. It's a circus most of the time, but we love it. Right now, the kids are in Louisville with their dad, getting ready to attend their first Kentucky Derby, and I'm enjoying the peace and quiet. :)
