Welcome to our family! The more the merrier. :BIG:
I'm pretty new to lupus and the forum as well. I've been diagnosed on March '06. I, too, am taking prednisone and CellCept (for my kidney nephritis). I have my daily doses of the usual: headaches, aches and pains, swollen fingers, achey-hot feet, sun aversion, fatigue, etc...
I see that you have AIM, I'd love to chat with you online, but, I use Yahoo Messenger. Something's wrong with my AIM. I'm trying to set up a buddylist of forum members, because there are days when you just want to vent and scream, or just talk to someone who knows first hand what I'm going through.
I am also from the east coast (NJ).
Welcome to our family! Everyone is very supportive, understanding, knowledgable, and oh so friendly. Come visit as often as you like. You're not alone and we're here for you. :B-fly:
