Hello from another newbie!
Just a note to say how thankful I am to have found this group. I am a 30 yr. old Mother of 2. I was first suspected of having Lupus in 1995 when they found anticardiolipen antibodies present in my blood. I have had many different symptoms ranging from chronic kidney and urinary track infections, potassium drop outs, joint pain and stiffness, migrain headaches and stroke like symtoms. Right now I am mainly fighting the massive fatigue and soreness plus I once again have a kidney infection. Yesterday I went to UIHC to see if there are any new options out there and they are doing some more tests next week to look for new lesions. I am really frustrated with the depression and anxiety that seems to plague me. I know a bad marriage does not help so that is my first obstacle. I look forward to getting to know you guys!
