    Kristin -

    How did the new rheumy appt go in Philly? I'm in Burlington County so Philly's not too far. We used to live in Central Jersey and I loved my doc's up there, but it's too far of a drive up there now to try and find a rheumy up that way.

    Hi,
    I am from South Jersey and have not been able to find a local support group. Were you able to start one up? I have been dealing with Lupus for about a year now and it would be nice to share insight and things that help us make it through everyday life. I found out the ultraviolet light(especially between the hours of 10 a.m. and 4 p.m.) and flourescent lights are a major cause to Lupus flare ups. So try and cover up, avoid those hours if possible, and change out your light bulbs. Even try to wear sunscreen if inside the house or a building using flourescents. I know it sounds ridiculous, but I will try anything as long is it can possibly help me. It may help you as well. I heard this info was released from the Mayo Clinic. Which is really good to know. Well hope to hear from you and any possible info on a support group.

    Wow! Cherry Hill and Voorhees must be somewhat new. There really was nothing when I was looking. Thank you for posting the link!
