    Hi Francesca,

    I'm Rob, and I was diagnosed with SLE in 2004. You have come to the right place. No need to feel like an alien here. I understand exactly what you mean when you speak of putting on a happy face. That's something just about all of us have had to do, and some of us still do. Anyway, I just wanted to say welcome, and please make yourself at home here.

    Rob

    Hello and Welcome to our Family;
    As everyone else has already said, you are certainly in the right place to be amongst people who understand what you are feeling and what you are going through. I have been living with Lupus for over 30 years and I know all about the roller coaster ride that you are experiencing.
    You will find that this place is filled with people who truly understand, who can offer good advice, who will give you trustworthy answers or who will just be here for you when you need someone to talk to.
    I am glad that you joined us......

    Peace and Blessings
    Namaste
