Hi everyone, i'm new to this site, just wanted to introduce myself.
I was diagnosed with SLE in May of 2006, when i was 19 years old, it has been a little roller coaster since then but i have a positive attitude and that is half the battle i think :D Hope everyone is well!!!!

Welcome jseda,

I am very new to the site but it is awesome. It has so much support and information/suggestions. I do agree with you positive attitude is a wonderful thing to have in this roller coaster of a disease. I am so glad to hear things are going fine for you at this time.

Always Stay Positive ~ Love,

Hello Jseda

Wanted to send a welcome your way, as well.

I was diagnosed at age 18....have lived with this for quite awhile now. You're right about the positive attitude thing. Attitude is everything. Oh, and a sense of humor comes in handy too. :lol:

Glad you jumped on board. Looking forward to your contributions.

Hi Jseda;
Welcome to our family :lol: Our attitude can have an immense affect on our Lupus and a positive one even more so. If we allow stress to overcome us, it can do great damage to our disease and make our flare-ups much more severe. So, continue to keep a positive attitude, continue to learn all that you can about Lupus, its symptoms, its treatments, its over-lapping diseases, its medications and how it affects you! We are here to help you do all of that. I am glad that you are here :lol:

Peace and Blessings

hi jseda,

welcome to the site. I am 56, and just diagnosed, although we b elieve that I have had since my 20s. Was probably in remission for about 10 years.

I can not imagine the toll that dealing with this disease has on young people trying to get started professionally, with families, etc. At least when I feel bad, the only one that gets deglected is my little dog Roscoe. He does not mind snoozing in bed with me for a couple of days.

Anyway, welcome, and feel free to discuss anything with us.
