Hey Ayshi123,

Welcome to our forum. I can only imagine what a challenge it would be to deal with Lupus at 18 years old. All of us seem to learn from one another.

Oluwa said it all. We are here filled with love, compassion, information, kindness, young at heart and older at heart. I hope you meet some new friends and are chatting in no time at all.

Take care,

thanx for the warm welcome. Believe me I am so happy that I found this forum because I'm the kinda person who doesnt like to tell everyone that she has lupus or explain what it is. But its different here. We all have something in common and I feel much comfortable.

Michigan..Troll or Upper? I was born a Upper...

Me, I don't mind talking about Lupus. I am Oluwa and I am a Lupie. or really anything, but I find I don't chat it up outside this forum because it makes people who do not have IT uncomfortable. They cringe or topic change. Makes for a dull afternoon for them.

I happy you found comfort here...isn't it great, someone like you, similar at the touch of a finger tip....

Be well and post often,

Hi Ayasha :lol:
Well, you've already met some of our family members here and you've seen how kind, welcoming, comforting, understanding and caring they are. That is only the tip of the ice burg here. There are many, many more family members who are just as kind, welcoming, comforting, understanding and caring as the ones you've met.
I wanted to add my "welcome" to the ones you've received and let you know that we are here for you whenever you need us. There will always be someone here to help you in any way that we can. As Oluwa (my angel) has said, we have members here from every walk of life, of every age and from almost all corners of the world. You are in good company and you are certainly never alone!!
I'm glad that you found us and that you've joined us!

Peace and Blessings
