    Default Hello

    Just found this site & decided to give it a try. My name is Paul & i was diagnosed w/ discoid lupus about 7 years ago back in Florida.
    I get lonely & depressed as there are no support groups nor have I found much online about/for men with lupus. Then I beat myself up for the self pity bit! i know there are people lots worse off than me but this fact is not a lot of comfort. anyway-hello all.

    Hi Paul! Welcome to WHL we are so glad that you found us! We all go through the "there are people worse of than us" thing but, you are correct, sometimes that is not what we need. I have found the best thing is to have a place where people do undersand what we are going though and today you have found that! There are wonderful people here and loads of information. Although there are more women here than men, we do have some wonderful men in the group (one of them being our FABULOUS Moderator Rob).

    No matter what kind of Lupus you have it is a hard pill to swallow. I hope you find the comfort here that I have and, once again, welcome to our Lupus family!

    Hello Paul & Judy,
    Welcome to our lovely family of the WHL, where there's so many threads for understanding the condition more.
    We all know how you both feel, as we're there ourselves, some still waiting results like myself, some taking medication hopefully to ease what they're going through.
    Take a look around and it will be nice getting to know you both and Paul never think your alone on this mate.

    Hello and Welcome Paul and Judy. I am so happy that you both are here and that you both decided to join our family.

    Paul, we have several men here and one of them is our moderator, Rob. I am sure that he will be along very soon to welcome you and to give you his take on being a male with this disease. You've already been directed to our Men's Forum where you will find great information, advice, and support for and from the men on our forum.

    Again..welcome to you both!

    Peace and Blessings
    Namaste
