Hello, Geraldine here from sunny Australia
I was a bit reluctant to join, because I haven't been officially diagnosed with lupus and sort of felt like an intruder, but my experiences so closely match some of the ones I have read on this site that it was quite a relief to land here - almost felt like 'coming home'
I won't bore you with a list of my symptoms, bad experiences with dismissive doctors and current intolerable ill health right away - I am just glad to have a place where people understand.
I look forward to getting to know you
