My name is Betty and I was officially diagnosed in 2006 but I believe I showed symptoms in 2003. I guess I wanted to join a forum like this because sometimes I feel lonely and need some support from people who understand what I am going through. I know a lot of the members know what I may be going through so its conforting to join the forum.
That is exactly why I joined, and I have found these people are wonderful. Welcome to you and I hope you fine WHL as useful as I have, the first couple of days I rarely left the computer. There are others out there who feel the same things, struggle with the same problems, and you will find a lot of them right here.
Welcome to our WHL family :-) Yes, this is a place where you will find people who understand what you are going through and who will provide you with support, comfort, information and friendship. Most of us also feel that we suffered, for years, with symptoms of Lupus before we were finally diagnosed. We were all a bit happy to finally have a name for the many things that were ailing us. While we were not happy to have a chronic disease, we were relieved to know that we were not losing our minds and that there was actually something wrong with us and it had a name!
You will find that there is always someone here when you need to talk, vent, question, or just want support. The people here are the kindest and the most understanding group on the web. I am glad that you are here! Again.....welcome.
Peace and Blessings
