Hello! My name is Sallie- I'm not new to having lupus, but I am new to this board (or to any other lupus site, for that matter). I've always sort of "handled" things even though I have had many problems of with my disease, the worst of which being severe kidney disease. I have recently been diagnosed with diabetes (secondary to long time steroids?) and then a month later CNS lupus. Suddenly I'm reeling and feeling like I just need to talk to other people with lupus who may be dealing with some of these same issues...looking forward to hearing your stories.
