    Hi Everyone,

    A few months ago I got a Lupus diagnosis and its been a big challenge trying to figure out how to handle this.
    I am 31 years old and have never had any health problems before. I started with lots of pain in my hands and it went on from there. I am joining to get some support because I don't know anyone else who has this.

    I may have been dealt a bad hand, but at least I'm still playing with a full deck. ( most of the time anyway).

    hi jazzy,

    welcome to our family. as you can see, this is a home filled with compassion. there is a magnitude of knowledge among our members, so you feel free to ask any questions.

    being diagnosed a few months ago, means that you are probably in a very frightened state at the moment. please try not to worry. yes, lupus is a devastating diagnosis and it changes our lives....but, we can help you face uncertainties, and we can walk with you as you learn how to live with lupus.

    i am glad that you decided to join, and i look forward to chatting more with you.
