    Cool Hello, from North Texas!

    Hello everyone!
    I live in the beautiful state of Texas and while I am new to this forum, I am not so new to Lupus. In fact, I have had it for many years and have experienced just about the whole gamut of symptoms and struggles. I am currently suffering from an acute flare up of disease activity and it has taken quite a toll on me. I am unable to work anymore, but I would sure like to get involved in a group like this so that I can both give and receive support.

    I am married, with a blended family that consists of 5 daughters, 14 grandchildren (with one on the way) and two great-grandchildren (but don't tell anyone because I'm not old enough to have great-grandchildren!). I don't know what I would do without my wonderful husband, who takes great care of me with kindess and compassion. As you know, Lupus is a difficult condition to live with and I feel blessed to see each day as it comes. I hope to hear from you, and look forward to getting to know you all better!

    Welcome to WHL! So sorry to hear about your flare, I know how hard those are. I am so glad to hear that you have a wonderful support system at home. That is so helpful!

    I look forward to getting to know you and, once again, welcome to the family!

    Thank you! I am really looking forward to being involved as much as possible. I remember what it is like to have a new diagnosis, be flooded with questions and have no one to ask. Even after having a definitive diagnosis for a few years, I still have baffling symptoms...Lupus and other associated AI's are so confusing!! So it will be great to be a part of an online support "Family".

    Welcome to WHL!
    I used to live in San Antonio. The AF sent us to CA for three years, and we'll be going back to SA in a year or so.
    I also have five adult children, and we currently have three grandsons.
    I'm glad that you're here, and I'm looking forward to getting to know you.
    Hugs,
    Marla

    Thank you everyone! You have all made me feel very welcome! I haven't been able to be online for a couple of days, so my today has been brightened by your responses. It is good to feel like I am a part of something really important and that I have an online place to call "home".

    Be blessed!
    May today bring you joy, freedom from pain, and abundance of blessings!
