    Good Morning and welcome to WHL! We are so glad that you found us. Although we have Lupus in our name we understand that many people with AI diseases have more then one disease and often we suffer in the same ways.

    Feel free to look around. There is wonderful information found in the old threads or feel free to start new ones if you wish. I look forward to getting to know and and, once again, welcome to the WHL family!

    Welcome. I keep thinking I am newly diagnosed though it has been about 8 months now. This is a good place. Remember that AI diseases especially lupus affect us all differently. You will meet people here with varying degrees of pain, discomfort and symptoms. I hope you find some comfort and some answers.

    Bunny, I'd still consider you newly diagnosed. I figure it takes at least a year to figure things out, sometimes 2 or 3.

    Welcome, Jenn. So sorry to hear that you have lupus and RA. Please rant away, read all the other rants and chime in when you are comfortable.

    Hey Jenn, welcome and I'm happy to meet you! I've only been on the board for a few weeks now but wow, what caring, wonderful people I have found here ~ I know that you will find a place to vent, laugh, cry and find great information, as I have done. We all understand how you're feeling ~ vent away when you need to!

    Welcome! I am newly diagnosed and still have tons of questions. There are times I would go crazy if I didn't have this group to talk to.
