Thank you very much TGal! Good to be here. I haven't been on for a while--got really sick and then (just like someone else I read on another threat) it snuck up on me and I feel great now! However, I saw my rheumy yesterday and she thinks I'm starting the next round of a flare (and I know she's right) so she's putting me on super high dose of intravenous corticosteroids, along with Azathioprine. My flare cycle usually lasts between 6 and 9 months. Hopefully these new drugs will send me into remission. You know a girls got to dream right! Ha ha. This site is so great though, even when I was really sick I was reading some threads and it made me feel better--I would have responded to some but the brain fog was so bad that I couldn't remember my logon (and I know I wrote it down and put it in a safe place--let's face it even if it was stuck to my forehead I still wouldn't have found it!) Arrgh damn Lupus! Oh well if I have to have Lupus, I'm very glad I found this site. Thanks.
I just wanted to welcome you to the site! Please let me know if you need anything while you are here
