Welcome Debi

Hi Deb
pleased to meet you and welcome. :wink2:Sorry you have had your d/x for so long, but glad that you can get to know us all.

Many of us don't talk to friends or family about our medical problems, and that's why it's great :blush:to talk online with others in similar circumstances.

I too have had strokes with a lifetime of symptoms, :eek:and am just getting specialists to take notice-off for 3 more appointments next month.

To see posts of others who have a problem too, helps us to access the lupus/aps/etc information :rolleyes:this site offers. We like to have a bit of fun too, :hehe:like some good fun recipes, hobbies- gardening, reading etc. There is the facility for private posts and email addresses if we like.
I am on the northeast coast of Australia, so my times of posting are often different, In our city we don't have specilaits, :eek:so I fly away.

:lol:nan, and despite symptoms, I try to lead a happy life.:)
I look forward to seeing your posts, and how you are getting on

You can definitely make some friends here! That's exactly what this forum is for and I'm glad you found us and hope we can be of some help.

I don't talk about my lupus very much to my friends or family anymore either beyond the minimum necessary. Mostly because it doesn't do me much good anyways, and I have the good people here to share with and support and laugh with too ;)

Many good wishes for continued recovery from your stroke and welcome to the site. We're glad to have you here. Welcome!

Hi Debi,

Welcome to the lupus site. It is nice to meet you.

I talk to my brother a lot about lupus. He fully understands because he has lupus too. All the members here are very friendly and helpful.

Take care,
Lyn

Hi debi and welcome :)

What meds are you taking to control your lupus? Do you see a Neuro for your seizures?

love
Lily

Jennifer, What you said to me was very kind. Bless You.
Also please remember that Faith helps us to endure what can't be cured.
