    HI ALL!!!

    Feels great to look at peoples posts and realize im not alone out here!!! My name is Arika! i was diagnosed with Lupus in 2008 when i was about 4 months pregnant with my son. Have a few cousins with Lupus but had no clue what it was or what effect it has on the body. I have Lupus Nephritis, antiphospholipid antibody syndrome, and seizure disorder. I look forward be being able to vent and others actually know how i feel!!!

    Hi Arika,

    Welcome to the WHL & lovely to have you with us.

    You'll learn alot from the threads and if you need to vent anytime just do it mate, it helps the pressure, as depression is the worst thing for setting off Lupus.

    I was diagnosed 3yrs back but they told me i was born with it. I've got Antiphospholipid/SLE like yourself and have had two forms of seizure's since i was 18 and i'm now 42, so i know what your going through in that sense.

    Hello Arika. There are often people here who are pregnant, or are thinking about falling pregnant with Lupus, so your experience will be greatly appreciated.

    Hi Arika!

    Welcome! You and I already have two things in common...we have lupus and were pregnant in 2008. My son was born that year. I hope that you find this a friendly and warm place.
