It's been overwhelming to go from perfectly healthy to having a non-curable disease! During this last week, I have noticed a subtle pink blush on my cheeks and nose .. not sure if that's the infamous butterfly rash or not??? I would love to find a New Hampshire or Massachusetts Lupus specialist that I could make an appointment with. Does anyone have any recommendations? I am not a good one to "wait and see" . Looking forward to this website . .and "meeting" many of you! Thanks for being there! Gail
