Hi there and welcome to the board.

You have found a great place to come for support, knowledge and friendship.

I was recently dx with Lupus too so I am learning but I can tell you the folks here have taught me so much.

There are links with this board that you should utilize and read all you can.

Also, a great book I recommend to folks newly dx with Lupus is called, "The Lupus Book" by Dr. Daniel Wallace.

It is a must have and written in layman terms. Amazon has it and so does Barns and Noble.

Hope to get to know you better. Take a deep breath, Lupus is not a death sentence. Knowledge is power and once you learn about Lupus and have a better understanding of it you will cope with it better. I think we all go into shock when first diagnosed.

What are your symptoms and how did they diagnose you? Abnormal bloods?

Also, join us in the chat room sometime. Purple tool bar at the top of the page will get you there.

Hope to chat with you and take care.:wink2::wink2::wink2:
