Sorry you did not get anyone else from your area :cry: How are you? I hope that Lupus is not being unkind to you!
I'm happy that you are with us and hope to see you post again very soon!

Thanks for the replies! Even though it wasn't through this site I did get in touch with someone that I walked with at the Walk For Lupus Now event in Nashville last year, so I'm happy about that!!

I live in south west Virginia near the Tn border about 500 miles from Kingsport and about 30 from Middlesboro Ky. I was just diagnosed and do not know anyone with lupus. I have SLE lupus which showed up because of a blood test to check my diabetes. I go to a liver specialist in Kingsport, Dr Sullivan. He put me on a tapering doe of predisone. I return for an appointment on the 17th. He had to order a further breakown , DNA antigens on the blood tests before medicare will approve a CT scan of my liver. I am a little apprehensive about all of this.

Not in Middle TN, but East TN just outside of Knoxville. Have had a hard time locating any local groups, they all seem to be in Nashville:/

I live in Pennington Gap about 40 miles from Middlesboro. Who is your Ra? I have an appointment with the Kingsport Ra Associates and am going to Dr Michael Sullivan in Kingsport as a liver specialist. I was just diagnosed in December. I am a diabetic and blood testing for it showed high liver enzymes which has led to multiple blood work, an endoscope a colonscope, a lung xray and now a ct scan of my liver is scheduled. I guess I have had it for at least 5 years. I thought the rash was an allergy and never mentioned it to my doctor. I was put on a tapering dose of predisone in December for three weeks. I have an appointment with Sullivan this morning to see what my next step is. Until this happened I vaguely knew what Lupus was and did not know anyone who had it. My Mom had MS. She died in 63 at 33. Until the past few years I had been healthy. I am 64 and retired. I really need someone else with Lupus to help me understand my new life with Lupus. I want to try to live a normal life as possible.

Hi Sandy,
I am in Antioch, for now. We are looking to move to Murfreesboro. Your post is an old one. Are you still there? I hold a support group on the 4th Wednsday of every month at the Vanderbilt Health 100 Oaks 719 Thompson Lane Entrance D. I am in suite 21604 just inside the administration entrance on the second floor past pediatrics. Most times we only have 3 of us, so we would love to have you join us.
