    Default Hello Everyone!

    I am glad to be a member here! My lupus was diagnosed in 1995,
    after I went to a large teaching hospital. I believe I had
    lupus for years before it was diagnosed.
    I am originanally from Metro N.J., but moved to the Midwest in
    the 90's.
    My daughter and I live near family in a small town.
    Along with SLE, I have degenerative disk disease and use a
    power w/c at home. My back pain seems to be the hardest
    part of my illness.
    I look forward to meeting everyone and sharing!

    Hi and welcome to WHL.
    I have a mixture of AI diseases - Lupus, Sjogren's, RA and Psoriatic Arthritis. I also have Spasmodic Dysphonia (vocal cords spasm) and I'm about to be evaluated for Spastic Paraplegia (spasms in leg muscles). Like you, I have mobility issues and I use a cane, a rollator and sometimes a wheelchair. If I do have SP, I may have to use the wheelchair much more often in the future. You and I may have a lot in common.
    Hugs,
    Marla
