Hello everyone, so glad to find this site. I was diagnosed with Lupus and Sjogren's Syndrome a year ago. My physician gave me good advice....you have Lupus, but it doesn't have you. I am married with 2 grown daughters, and 2 lovely cats, Mustang Sally and Jersey. Am also a retired RN. Am looking forward to the discussions, and "meeting" you. Bless you all, Joan B.
Welcome to WHL Joan. Please make yourself at home!
BTW-I'm a cat lover too, I have three.
Hi Joan! Welcome to WHL. We are so glad that you found us. Please make yourself at home. Look through the old threads or start new ones if you wish. I look forward to getting to know you
Thanks again Rob, I feel at home already. Your cat is beautiful! I will prepare the nuke! Joan B
Hi tgal thanks for making me feel at home. I'll start looking at the threads. So helpful. That quote is exactly how I feel, thank you. Do you have lupus as well? Joan B
A warm welcome from me too.
To answer your question, most of us here have lupus and many have not been diagnosed yet.
I have lupus, RA, fibro, asthma, sjoegrens and raynauds.
You can ask any kind of question and somebody will answer it, concerning lupus and co.
Thanks! Are you a Sci-Fi fan? The Nuke line is from the movie Aliens.

I am glad you have a postive doctor to help you out.
Welcome to the WHL and it's lovely to have you part of our large family who support one another in different ways.
It's an hard factor to deal with and when i don't feel well i come on here and let lose how i feel which i think is great besides family listening to it, as everyone can help you in their own different ways plus anything your not sure about there's loads of threads besides us that carry so many answers.
Welcome to WHL. I see you live in Bethlehem. I went to college in York and my parents have a place in Stroudsburg and my sister in Doylestown so I've passed through your town alot going back and forth amongst those places and Long Island. Haven't been around there in years but I used to love going there for First Night. Such a quaint town. I know there are some other members in your general area and I'm sure they'll be around to say hi real soon too.
