Remember me? If you don't it's no wonder. I've been gone a long time. Too long! My eyes had some heavy damage and for a while I had to avoid anything that makes them drier including time on the computer. For quite some time it was very very limited. Still not out of the woods yet and have to really baby my eyes, but I've got a really great doctor and the healing is wonderfully progressive. Flares still come and go but I'm able to push through most and when that happened I got busier...and loving it! I've been living life as full as a lupie can. I've thought about you all and kept you all in my prayers. Some of you I have kept in touch somewhat through facebook, but I stink at keeping up with that too. I'm sorry about that. I've got a lot of catching up to do! I hope all my old pals are here. I've missed my WHL family! (((Hugs))) I came here years ago in a daze and so many here held my hand and helped me understand so much about autoimmune disease and that there is so much hope. Mountaindreamer literally held my hand, bless her heart! I can't tell you all how many times I found encouragement here. I've missed this sweet little family a lot!
With much love and apppreciation,
Abbasgirl, aka Leslie
Hi Tgal! It's so good to see you and good to be back home. ((Hugs))
I don't remember you. But, don't worry, that's because we've never met, not because you're forgettable! (:
As you can see, i only joined a month or so ago. So HI! Welcome back! I've noticed a few of your posts around here today, and I can tell it'll be wonderful to have you back (:
I'm glad to hear that you're recovering, even slowly, and I hope your eyes will be back to (relatively) normal, soon. Good to hear you've been being busy and happy whilst living with Lupus.
Oh, I'm Elo by the way. Yep, my name is my name. How original, huh? :P
Nice to meet you!
I am sorry you are having problems with your eyes.
I am so glad you are back.
I may have been dealt a bad hand, but at least I'm still playing with a full deck. ( most of the time anyway).
Hi Leslie, me again. Now if we can just catch Phyllis we can have a family Reunion. Sorry to hear about youreyes; mine havebeen troubled also
I remember you well, and I'm so very glad to see you here again.
I just posted not long ago that I really miss some of our family members who have disappeared.
I hate it when we don't hear from them - I'm a mother hen and I worry about them.
I'm glad that you're getting good treatment. Keep getting better and keep coming back.
Hi Leslie, I don't remember you but its nice to meet you. I sure hope your eyes don't act up again. I have q mild form of dry eyes and its tolerable. I can't imagine if they got worse. Good luck to you.
Thanks for the warm welcome back. It's good to be back and see familiar faces too and nice to meet the new ones.
Hi Steve, LovedbyHim, and Elo. It's nice to meet you all. Elo, I like that name.
Hello Debbie and Marla! I've missed you! I look forward to getting caught up with how you're doing.
Marla, quid agis hodie?
Nonna, I've missed you dear friend! Sorry to hear your eyes have been acting up also.
