Hi all

Just wanted to introduce myself. My name is Helen and I live in Melbourne Australia. I am married to a wonderful man and we have three terrific kids a dog that is systematically destroying our garden and a cat that thinks she is a dog.(plays fetch with a ball)

After many years of symptoms I was finally diagnosed with sle a couple of weeks ago and have begun treatment. Its good to finally know my enemy so that I know what weapons to use in the fight.

I would love to get to know others who fight this rotten disease and would like to give and receive support.

Look forward to getting to know everyone
