Hi Everyone! My name is Erin and I was diagnosed with Lupus in October of 2004. Since then I have overcome some serious obstacles but am currently fighting my toughest battle to date. I joined this site because I really want to connect with others who are dealing with Lupus too. Lately it has been way too easy for me to forget that I am not alone in this and that there are others out there who know exactly how I am feeling. I'm looking forward to meeting some new people and possibly gaining some new information. I also hope that maybe I will be able to help someone with the knowledge that I've gained during my battle with Lupus over the last 8 years.
