    Hi Sandy! I wanted to take a moment to welcome you to WHL. You have found a wonderful group of people and there is always someone around for support. Please make yourself at home and look through the old threads or start new ones if you wish. I look forward to getting to know you and welcome to the WHL family!

    Sandramae, wow, there seems to be a rush of college age people on the site all of a sudden! Hopefully you will all connect and share tips for coping with the transition into college and the working world. There are lots of folks here, of all ages, who have wisdom and experience to share.

    What are your issues and where are you hoping to go now that you are a college grad (congratulations, by the way!)

    FYI... There is a section for teens and, even though some of the influx of young people are in their 20's it might be a good place for all of you to talk (I promise to do better about staying out of the teen section then I do the men's section! I just forget to check where I am!)

    Does the teen section have a moderator, then, if you try to stay away? Not concerned, just curious.

    When I say stay away I mean not post. We all moderate the entire board but the teens don't usually want an old lady jumping in their conversations! The problem is that since I read new threads by going to the "What's New" section I don't see where the post is coming from (because I don't pay attention) and I start posting away. It kind of becomes a problem when I am posting away and I figure out that I am on a thread about ED issues (sorry guys!)

    Hmmm, I probably have ventured into the teen section that way, too. I look at "New Posts". Sorry, young-ins, if I have put my big mouth where it didn't belong!

    Hi Sandy! I know you will love these folks. Yes there seems to be a lot of young folks with lupus arriving lately. I'm so glad you found us. This is a long rough road and so good to find someone to travel with us!

    Hi ritzbit! I'm around your age (quite close actually). Just wondering, when were you diagnosed with lupus?
