    Default Hello

    Hi to everyone, I am new to the forum so please forgive any silly mistakes. I live in KY and have had Lupus most of my life. I did fairly well with flares about twice a year until about 17 years ago and then I had to take meds which I continue to this day. I was very active until 2 years ago when I was diagnosed with an overlay of polymyalgia rheumatica (PMR). This has been pretty rough and I was wondering if any others out there are dealing with the same problem.

    Hi Caroljo and welcome to WHL! There is never a need to apologize for mistakes around here. The majority of us have brain fog/memory issues so there is no telling what we may do or say! Many of the people on here have overlapping diseases. It is very common among people with autoimmune issues. Feel free to look at the old threads or start new ones if you wish.

    I look forward to getting to know you and please make yourself at home!

    Hi CarolJo!

    Welcome! I know what you mean about those mistakes. In fact we all do. If you want a good laugh - go to Laurie's Lounge and look at the thread "You know you have brain fog when". I'm going to pull it up to the top for you.

    Hi Caroljo;
    Welcome to our family where there is no such thing as "silly mistakes". I am sorry to hear that you are not doing well right now. Many of us here also suffer from overlapping diseases. Some of us have 5-6 different diseases all occurring at the same time. So, you are amongst people who truly understand what you are dealing with.
    Please know that we are all here to help you and that you are never alone when you are here with us

    Peace and Blessings
    Namaste
