    Hey Michelle! (:
    Welcome to the forums/ WHL Family!
    It is a really great place to talk to like minded people, as you said, and especially hear from people who have lived and dealt with the disease for so long, and are learning to handle it the best they can.
    I'm sorry to hear that you're dealing with so many health problems Lupus on its own sucks enough, but having so many more must be very hard.

    Hope you like it here - welcome again (:

    Hi Michelle,

    I have the multiple AI thing going too. I was diagnosed with SLE in 2004, and then MS just a couple years ago. Yep, I got em both. I think you'll like this place, as we've got a great bunch of people here.

    Welcome to WHL!

    Hi and welcome to WHL! As has already been said this is a wonderful place! Great people and some of the best information that you can find.
    I too have multiple AI diseases. It seems to be common with us. Once you get one a whole wide world of AI diseases are open and waiting to be your friend. LOL

    Please make yourself at home. Read through the threads and post if you want or simply make your own threads if you have something that you want to talk about. If you have any questions about getting around here let us know. We will be glad to help

    Hi Michelle!

    Welcome! I'm new, too, and also have a lot of autoimmune unpleasantness going on. I have SLE, Crohn's Disease, hypothyroidism, and heart arrhythmia problems. It can all be overwhelming, can't it? Glad you're here and hope to see you on the forum often!
