San Diego - one of my favorite places! Been there many times.
I, too, was diagnosed at an 'older' age than most (56) but was told I probably had lupus-related symptoms for many, many years - probably since my 20s.
Glad you found us and hope you find some support here that will make a difference for you. And, glad you 'found' your old sweetheart at a time you really needed him! How lovely for both of you! Guess it's true that good things happen to those who wait! My husband and I have been together for 30 years, but it was a second-time-around for both of us.
Welcome to our 'family'!
