Hello, from this corner of the world! 8)

My nick is Marinera, I live in Florida , 46 yrs old. I've been diagnosed with lupus for more than 20 yrs now, but living with its complications since I was 3 ( kidney problems ). actually I'm going through a flare up(7 month in it now), which is kind of depressing, but trying to ignore the most of it, ops: not easy eh!!! I had benn receiving cytoxan pulses , prednisone, quinine, and bla, bla.... guess you all know about it, I had most of the complication( Nephritis, thrombophlebitis, pulmonary embolism, Heart attack) and side syndromes (Fibromyalgia, Rynaud's, sjogrens, Antiphospholipid, ect , ect ) that SLE bring to our life, so I learn to handle them , so my family won't notice and worry more than what they should. Surfing through the net I found this forum, which seems very interesting, hope to share my experience and learn from yours.

read u all later!!
