    Hi Tammy ! Guess what? My name is Tammy. Do you you know what our name means? It means, "Seeker of truth." I know you will find that here as this is a great family. Welcome!

    Hi Tammy!
    I haven't been diagnosed with anything other than a vague AI disease, so i'm sorry but I have no idea what that means either! Hehe.
    Welcome to the forum It's wonderful to have you here - feel free to look around and comment on some threads or even start a new one with a topic of your choice. being able to talk to and hear from people who have lived with the disease for so long can really help, especially if you feel like people in your "real life" don't understand you, or you're scared about longevity with the disease.
    Welcome again!

    Default thanks everyone

    thanks everyone i appreciate the warm welcome .i found out 4 weeks ago that i have this type of lupus im a little confused on some of the things i read on lupus sites so i am so happy i found this one with real people who have this real disease .i have a follow up appointment on Wednesday for my other blood test results so i have a list of questions for the Dr when i see him lol i cried for a week staright when i found out that i had subacute cutaneous lupus and i was wondering if anyone on here has this type and is it a milder form of lupus and does it pretty much stay on the skin and doesnt usally progress to the organs? i do have the muscle and joint pain but the plaquenil helps with that i have been on plaquenil for 4 weeks now i take 200 mg twice a day.
