View Full Version : New to the boards but not to Lupus

12-23-2008, 11:39 AM
Hello All,

I just wanted to introduce myself. My name is Kim and I have been living with Lupus for almost 16 years now. I was diagnosed at the age of 17 during my senior year of high school. I am one of the lucky ones that now lives relatively pain free after some really dark years. I was able to get off of disability and go back to school to get my AA degree. I have been working full time in a law office for three years now with no problems to speak of really (knocks on wood). I just found this board and can't wait to get to know you all better. Have a happy and hopefully pain free holiday everyone.

Welcome Kim,

Glad you found us, hope you stay healthy for a very very very long time :)

My sister was diagnosed back in the 80's, she has been in remission for many years.

I've had symptoms on and off since my late teens, I'm 48 now, but I am not diagnosed...long stupid story that ends with rheumy is an idiot.

This is a great board, lots of very kind friendly and humorous souls. It's a great port in a storm or in good times.
