Welcome to the site. I was also diagnosed in last August. Yes everyday there is a new thing. You'll find everything you need to know about Lupus and associated illnesses on this site.

Do try to stay positive - even though it's hard at times.

Welcome to the forum Chrissie :)
I am sorry about your diagnosis and continuing problems. It can take some time to find the right medicines and it is quite early days yet. It takes time too to adjust to the whole idea and make whatever adaptions are needed and possible.
Let us know how we can help you. I am sure you will find lots of understanding and support here and hopefully the information to make life with lupus easier and get the best treatment. It is very comforting to be with people who know what it's like.

Bye for now

Clare

Hello Chrissie, Welcome. It will get better when the medications really kick in. Also you get to know more and handle it better.

Hi Chrissie and Welcome to the Forum

I will be diagnosed now for four years this coming year and I can empathise with something new cropping up every week. For the longest time I was totally fed up with coming out of my appointments with different medications each time. You will find lots of support and understanding here. What medications are you currently on?

Looking forward to getting to know you

Take care
Joan:rose:

Hi Chrissie,

Just wanted to welcome you to the board.

I hope your Lupus calms down some.

Sounds like you have had it rough.

Hope to get to know you better.:wink2:

Hey Chrissie,

Just wanted to say hi as i only joined the website today. I was diagnosed with Lupus nearly 10 years ago at the age of 17 and i didn't really know how to deal with it either. It was a very scary moment for me and my mum.

I hope that everything calms down for you soon and that you have all the help and support you need.

Jess:)
