    Hello everyone, so glad to find this site. I was diagnosed with Lupus and Sjogren's Syndrome a year ago. My physician gave me good advice....you have Lupus, but it doesn't have you. I am married with 2 grown daughters, and 2 lovely cats, Mustang Sally and Jersey. Am also a retired RN. Am looking forward to the discussions, and "meeting" you. Bless you all, Joan B.

    Hi Joan,

    A warm welcome from me too.
    To answer your question, most of us here have lupus and many have not been diagnosed yet.
    I have lupus, RA, fibro, asthma, sjoegrens and raynauds.
    You can ask any kind of question and somebody will answer it, concerning lupus and co.

    I may have been dealt a bad hand, but at least I'm still playing with a full deck. ( most of the time anyway).

    Welcome Joan. The doctor who diagnosed my Lupus with a biopsy said to me. "You have Lupus, it is a life long illness, take these tablets and keep out in the sun" mmmmm.... very informative!!!!

    I am glad you have a postive doctor to help you out.

    Hi Joan,
    Welcome to the WHL and it's lovely to have you part of our large family who support one another in different ways.
    It's an hard factor to deal with and when i don't feel well i come on here and let lose how i feel which i think is great besides family listening to it, as everyone can help you in their own different ways plus anything your not sure about there's loads of threads besides us that carry so many answers.
