Hey Chriss, I'm sorry you're going through this. I had water retention a few months back and it drove me crazy too. I mean, how on earth could I possibly gain 8 pounds overnight?!?! Lupus. Arghhhhh!!!! The good thing is that it eventually goes away. The hard part is wating for it to finally happen! Sending you lots of hugs, love and friendship. Hang in there, and show lupus who's boss!!
