Well first things first just wanted to say a big thank you to everyone on this site. It's been 18 months since I started treatment for my "Mild" Lupus and I have found this site invaluable. Everyone is so helpful and supportive and at times I have felt so isolated and lonely then I come on here and reading everyone's posts or replies to my own threads such a lifeline.

So a huge thanks to Joanne for starting this in the first place, and to all the moderators too. Also to all the members who make this lupus gig far much more easier to deal with knowing your not alone!

Secondly I convinced my bosses that we should become a training centre for Vet nurses (as we always have a problem recruiting probably because we are out in the sticks). Just over a year ago we were approved (that was pretty stressful) and one of the vets and myself started our A1 Assessors award training. We handed in our portfolio's in December and I received an email from our tutor yesterday to say we had both Passed and are now qualified Assessors YEAH!!!:yahoo::woohoo:

So just wanted to share this with you all!

Woot, Claire! How exciting for you to see your suggestion turned into reality and see yourself become an important part of the path to success for so many people. You have worked hard and taken a lot of risks to get where you are today. Good for you. I am so thrilled to hear of people who persevere through this stupid disease and live a strong life. I'm really happy for you.

And I agree with you 100 percent that this site is important beyond measure. Thank goodness for Joanne. Thank goodness for every one of the moderators and past moderators and future moderators and all the posters and friends and .... all of us.....

Hugs and Congrats to Claire,
Sunny

Thanks so much for the congratulations. I treated myself to a new long coat today that goes to my knees to keep me that bit warmer, been blooming cold down here that has even been "icebergs" on the beach. I was going to ask for a Nintendo DS but I thought that was a bit cheeky :lol:

I am planning on having a glass of wine tonight and well deserved too!! Rather cuffed with myself to say the least!
