Hi everyone. My name is Christy and I was just diagnosed with SLE a month ago. This looks like the perfect board to find others like myself. I feel kind of alone in all of this. No one understands how I feel, emotionally or physically. This diagnosis has kind of come as a double blow to our family, as my son who is five, was just diagnosed with juvenile diabetes in April of this year. I hope to get to know some more of you.
