    You didn't do anything wrong Elaine. We had to make some changes due to an influx of spammers awhile back so the first 2 posts you make have to be approved. If one of us is not around to approve it at that moment then it may take a little while. After the initial few posts your posts will automatically show up.

    Welcome to both of you. We are glad to have you as part of the WHL family

    Welcome Megan. I'm new to this site also but I want you to feel supported. A new diagnosis is overwhelming , so much to think about and adjust to in your daily routine but you will find your way I promise. Try and get support from loved ones and learn to listen to your body!! You are going to be great! God bless you on your journey and we are here for you!

    Hi ladies!

    I'm new...ish, couple of weeks or so on here I think! Being on here has helped me so much. I felt so isolated, struggling, guessing etc alone (I'm not alone, I have a great family, but this lupus stuff is a lonely business going round and round in my head!)
    Anyhow....I'm not alone now. SO much better for being here!
