My name is Margie and I've been suffereing for years from many symptoms incl. the skin rash at my left foot

It's until this month that I found an internal specilist who is familiar with all the Lupus manifestations that has diagnosed it.

I'm in pain and I was searching for a friendly forum specially for Lupus patients and I found your forum.

Thank you for all the informations you give and all the wonderful articles.

I am new to the site and have found lots of good information. I have not been formally diagnosed but just connecting with people who have similar symptoms and experiences has helped my anxiety level. A good many folks are giving me great advice at standing up for myself, especially dealing with physicians who are not very good at listening. I feel like I am better prepared to go to the doctor with good questions and most of all confidence to communicate what my symptoms are. I wish you well. I am confident that much of the information and support you will find here will be a lifesaver. Betty

As you can see, you have certainly come to the right place to find friendly people who truly understand how this disease can affect every part of our lives. I am glad to hear that you finally have a doctor who is knowledgeable about Lupus and I truly hope that he treats your symptoms, takes you seriously and works with you to ward off flare-ups.
The people here are more than willing to share experiences with you, give you information, answer your questions or just be here when you need someone to listen! We are a global family, but still a very caring one. I am glad that you are here!
