hi rhonda and welcome.
there is quite a few international members on here, so you are not alone.
there is also quite a few who live in hot environments, so you are not alone.
many of us are used to having trouble finding someone knowledgable,
but at least the military has the ability to source the correct people for you.
please take some time to read our older posts,
they are our personal experiences with lupus.
When you're stressed, You eat Ice cream, Cake, Chocolate & Sweets. Why? Because stressed spelled backwards is DESSERTS.
