    Thumbs up I am new here

    Hi my name is paula, i'm 57, in the milwaukee area the past 7 yrs.. I was dx'd w/ lupus when 42, but had many issues as far back as in my teens. When things set in and didnt back off, is when i started to mention symptoms to my dr.. Took a bit of time to get the dx. That was not a fun time in my life. Having a dx makes it i think easier,knowing what it is causing all these things to happen to my body. With time a few more ills have been added to the list, lol-the most difficult being my pancreas. Found out the hard way that s.l.e. Can mess w/that organ too. Still here tho, kinda scary a cpl times and long admits in the hospital.as of right now, i am trying to get along thru each day the best way i can.
    I have been married(#2) for 34 plus yrs. Now, my children are adults. Lived most of adult yrs. In calif., moved back opposite to what most ppl do, older to colder weather,instead of other way around. Guess this is long enough for now, a bit of my situation.ty for listening, and hope/peace/love to u all---paula
