I have to agree with Bonita.
When I was first dx, I did not own a pc, as unbelievable as it now sounds. So the only recource was the library. I read dozends of books. About one year later I got a pc and did alot of research, but like bonita said, there was no interaction with other people.
I wanted to know, how people dealt with their dx and what kind of symptoms other lupies have. When I found WHL, I have found all of that, plus friendship, compassion and understanding. Now it feels like having an extended family.
I may have been dealt a bad hand, but at least I'm still playing with a full deck. ( most of the time anyway).
