    Default Anyone from Oklahoma?

    Are there any members who are in Oklahoma, United States?
    I live in the Northwest part of the state, near Woodward. I lived in Oklahoma City for a long, long time and have just moved up close to my parents and other family that can help me out.

    Default New Member in Oklahoma

    I am a brand new member and I live in the south-central part of Oklahoma in a little town named Davis. Have you heard of the Arbuckle Mountains? Turner Falls? Arbuckle Wilderness? Chickasaw National Recreational Area? Arbuckle Lake? We have it all here. It is a very pretty place to live. Is there a support group close to where you live? I am very lucky; we have a group that meets right here in Davis the 1st Thursday of each month. Vickey

    Default Yes, I know Davis!

    ShortandSassy:

    I know Davis and the Arbuckle mountain area. I have never lived or stayed there but I've driven through there when I used to work with Head Start programs in the Southeast part of the State. Now, I'm with my parents up in Gage, about 20 miles west/southwest of Woodward in NW Oklahoma. I don't work now.......have just gotten disability and learning to live with that and fight unproductiveness.
    You're lucky that you have a support group. So far, there is no group up here, but I'm checking into finding a place and getting a group started. It's so nice to talk to someone who knows exactly what you're going through, isn't it?

    Default Very Blessed

    Yes, I am very blessed to have not only my support group (whom I consider part of my family!), but also the love and support of my husband, my family and my friends. We have a really great support group. Is the closest group to you the Bartlesville group? Were you with a group in OKC? It does help a lot to talk to someone who truly understands what you are going through. I'm here if there is ever anything I can do for you. How long ago were you diagnosed? (because I'm sure we all had it for years before being diagnosed!)

    Default support groups in OK and diagnosis

    Vickey,

    I guess that Enid would be the closest group, if there were a group in Enid. I Haven't really checked.
    I have had Lupus for over 7 years. I was officially diagnosed around 2000. Since then the disease has progressed...and they thought it wouldn't but that just goes to show you how much research and meds have changed in just 7 years!
    Thank you for your support!

    Default Here if you need anything

    Trisha, just now catching up on my e-mails, etc. Sorry it's taken me so long to respond. Sounds like we were diagnosed close to the same time. How is your lupus now? And how far has it progressed? (if you don't mind me asking, if so, just ignore the questions) If there is ever anything I can do for you, please do not hesitate to let me know.
