Hello everyone

My name is Chet and I'm from Malaysia. I discovered this forum while googling for info on yogurt and lupus.

I was diagnosed with lupus in 1994 and have been through various periods of flares and remissions. I finally quit my job in July 2007 after realising that it was making me ill. The irony of that was I'd stayed in the job because of the medical benefits - the company was paying for my medical check-ups, bills and medications, but it was also making me ill. Or rather, the people I was working with. After quitting my job, my friends have been telling me how much better I look now!

I now work from home, tapping into my skills in writing and editing. I also set up and manage websites. I am currently webadmin for the websites (in 3 languages) of the Malaysian SLE Association.

I look forward to being an active member of this forum.
