    Default Hi, Carol

    And welcome. There are several people from England here on the forum, so I hope you will feel right at home. Several folks go to the Lupus Clinic in London - it's been so many years since I was in England, I don't remember much of the geography, but isn't Essex fairly close to East London? Does the damp weather affect your lupus? It seemed like the last time I was in London it rained every day and no one paid any attention to it. Never a hard rain, more like a mist, and every woman I met had a gorgeous complexion - I thought then the climate must be really good for the skin, but I expect it might also be hard on the joints.

    Very glad you are here, and look forward to hearing your experiences!
