Welcome =) I'm glad you found our forum, it is so helpful. I'm sorry that you're girlfriend has to go through this but she is so lucky to have someone who cares enough about her to learn about this disease like you. There are a lot of different ways to treat lupus and like they said its not a death sentence like it used to be. I hope your girlfriend decides to join too; this website has done a lot for me.
