Hi. Yesterday I was diagnosed with sle. That is after spending the last 15 years with a wrong diagnosis of rheumatoid arthritis. Ok then. So here I am rewiring my way of life and learning a new language. No support group in my state so I am here to learn all I can.

Welcome to WHL. You can learn a lot here. Read through the old threads that interest you, especially the stickys. Feel free to join in on threads and ask questions.
Many of us have an overlap of AI diseases. I have Lupus, RA, Sjogren's and Psoriatic Arthritis, with Meniere's and Spasmodic Dysphonia thrown in.
Hope to see you here agains soon.

Hi there! Welcome to WHL! We are so very glad that you found us. Often times the worst part of any AI disease is having to deal with it alone. Thankfully you are here and you are no longer alone.

As Marla mentioned many of these diseases overlap so many of the things you learned about the Arthritis will be true here. Just sit back, relax and unwind. You are now a part of the WHL family and we are always here for you.
