Hi everyone. I wanted to introduce myself and say hello. My name is Kayla. About 11 years ago, I was diagnosed with lupus and found a support system on message boards like this one. Since then, my life has really changed and I was asked to write about it in a blog for the Huffington Post. I thought I would post it here in case anyone was interested and also, because I want to reach out to the rest of the lupus community to ask you if there's anything in particular about healthcare and/or lupus that you want me to write about in the future.

Unfortunately, I'm unable to post the link here since I'm a new poster, which is fine.

I'm still happy to be a part of this community and chat with you guys.
