New to all of this
I am new to this forum and have already realized that I did not use it correctly. I tried to add to the Haiku section, but ended up making my own new section. Sorry everyone! I will try to get better at this.
I was diagnosed in January 2003. I feel very blessed as I had a wonderful doctor and he diagnosed it in 5 months. By most accounts, I have a rather low level of lupus activity. No major organ involvement, although some of my friends would argue that my brain has been effected.
I am glad I found this bulletin board, as I was a member of a support group that fizzled out then restarted during the day. I still work and plan to as long as I can. Again the mild activity helps in this. I look forward to "meeting" you and hope for the best for all of us.
What lies behind us and what lies before us are tiny matters compared to what lies within us.
