I'm Marla, and I'm Kayla's Mom! I have a beautiful 25 yr. old daughter named Kayla, who happens to also have a 4 yr old child - Kyle. We seem to have a lot in common.
I've been on the diagnosis trail since spring of 2007, and last February my rheumy decided that I have mixed connective tissue disease, so I'm dealing with lupus, RA, Sjogren's and psoriasis. I've had symptoms of these for a long time, so I've had AI issues for years.
Welcome to WHL. We have a wonderful, loving and understanding support group here. We also have some very knowledgeable and informative folks who can answer lots of your questions.

Have had the symptoms since i was in my 20's, but drs. then never put the pieces together. I look forward to your input. Everyone brings their individual story to the group, and we all learn. Thank you for choosing us.

So glad that you found the BEST forum on the web! I'm a forty something mom of three (my eldest son turned 26 yesterday--how on earth can I be old enough to have a son that age is beyond me!) and bonus mom to two girls.
I have only been diagnosed with SLE and Sjogren's Symptoms since Dec. 2008. I was diagnosed with Excessive Daytime Sleepiness in 1998 and gastroparesis in Summer 2006.
This is a nice group of people who are so helpful in providing feedback that our doctors have glazed over or haven't addressed in the first place. What, with brain fog and all, it's a wonder we can remember our names much less what the doctors tell us (in my case anyway).
Thanks for introducing yourself and make yourself at home.
