    Default new here & new to Lupus

    hello all,

    just diagnosed with Lupus on Wednesday... feeling a little overwhelmed.

    got any advice for a newbie? any particular questions i should ask my rheumatologist?
    any suggestions on what (aside from medication) has been helpful for managing symptoms?

    thanks!

    Hi Snakebite,
    Welcome to WHL. I have a good friend who lives and teaches in Manassas. I've called her often this winter when she was snowed in, and I was walking on the beach! LOL
    My advice to you is to read the stickys at the top of each forum. There is a lot of great information there. After you've learned all you can from the stickys and from reading any thread that interests you, come join in some conversations and ask questions. There is usually someone around who can help.
    I don't know your situation, but I've found that I've felt a lot better since I've slowed my life down and learned to listen to my body a lot more - I sleep when I need to, rest when I need to, and try to get out to walk when I feel like it.
    Hope this helps,
    Hugs,
    Marla
