Hello - I happened upon this website about 6 weeks ago in the middle of doing some research. I am currently between a lupus and/or rheumatoid arthritis diagnosis, and I am 28 years old. I just got married 4 months ago, and had spent all my life as a ballet dancer up until 2 years ago when the "back and knee pain" got to be too much. I lost my grandfather 4 weeks ago, and I'm pretty sure that I'm driving my new husband mad with "everything" that is going on with me! I've been reading a lot of books that encourage joining a support chat group, so here I am. I've read a lot of the postings, and many make me cry - I know I have a very mild case of this "rupus" as my doctor called it at my most recent follow up appointment. I guess I don't really have much to say or many questions at this point - I think I'm just looking for words from those of us that have been here and are doing this. Thanks!
