Just want to introduce myself...
My name is Cheryl and I live in Virginia. I am 29 and am married to a wonderful man and have a beautiful daughter.
I haven't yet had an official diagnosis, but my primary care Doctor say that based on my symptoms and ANA testing he believes it is probably Lupus. I see a specialist on 10/29/03 and am very nervous.
If anyone can share any experience with me or offer any advice, please let me know!
Looking forward to meeting everyone!
Hellie made me cry! (sniff)
I've been so emotional lately and Hellie's response was so nice, it made me cry! In a good way though.....I am lucky enough to have the support of lots of friends and family, but it means so much to talk to someone that is going through the same things and know how you feel. Part of the disease is depression and it is so easy to get down and overwhelmed! It's really easy sometimes to feel like you are all alone. It is really good to realize that I'm not.
