Hi my name is bri & im a 31 year old lady from london. I was eventually diagnosed with SLE in 1997, ive since suffered an acute flare up in 2000 which resulted in me losin all 4 digits on my left hand & 1/2 the index digit on my right, nerve damaged in both legs & some renal failure. :rolleyes:If it was not for the love & support of my family & son i think i would of given up ages ago but im here (give thanks) & still fightin on. Ive had a hip replacement 3years ago because of the amount of damaged that been on long term steriods has done & im currently waitin 2 have an operation on my left ankle as they suspect that just like my hip, my ankle has become damaged in the same way.

Like i said im new to this & just stumbled upon this site, but its a comfort 2 no & be able 2 read some of your stories, knowin that their are others out there like myself who have had a hard time with lupus & no matter what continue to believe, have faith & fight on:wink2:

Hi Bri and welcome :)

I'm so sorry to hear all that you have been through. Let's hope that things stay stable and calm for a while and that that op on your ankle is the last one for a long time to come.

I hope you enjoy being here with us and find this site as much help as I and many others have.

Hi Bri,

Sorry you have had such a rough go of things with your lupus.

I was dx with MS in 2005 and just got the correct dx of Lupus this past week.

I do hope that things will calm down for you.

I think you deserve a break. You will love it here.

These people are so supportive, informative and just great people!

hi nice to meet you & i agree with everyone else you have been through alot, I have just recently been diagnosed.

This forum Ive found is not only a wealth of REAL information but a ****** good place to have a good old rant when you need to & to get support from people who are going through similar things.

Hope your doing well

Parkesy

P.S - Apologies for the ****** lol
