hi there ikcin,
welcome, welcome, welcome....yes, i don't believe we had the benefit of computer searches 23 years ago. lol....I remember having the first portable computer in the 80's, and it certainly was not portable.....many of us, including me, are just learning the power of the internet, and continue to struggle with all of the workings....i am the worst.
but, this forum is incredible. i have educated myself about lupus, and i have learned how to live with lupus....both of which were accomplished because of the members here. I am so glad that you found us, and i also look forward to meeting and sharing with you.
