:blush: Hi! My name is Lynn and it's a pleasure meeting you all on this forum. I used to belong to a Lupus Forum many years back but the site closed and I have not been in any other sites since.

Was doing okay with my Lupus for a while and had gone into remission until 2 years ago and then the old lupus bug kicked me in the rear all over again!
I have alot of health issues but am pretty sure there are many of us in the same boat I am in! I live in the US and have CNS Systemic Lupus, Irritable Bowel Syndrome, Migraines, Fibromyalgia, Asthma, Neuropathy. A Pernious Anemia, Rheumatoid Arthritis, Spinal Stenosis and just had major surgery for that one! So I am recouperating from surgery on my spine. Boy was that painful!

I am looking forward to meeting new friends and hope I get to know many of you and enjoy this site. I'm a little bashful at first but will come around! I like to read, watch movies, gardening, swiming, and do alot of crafting. Pretty flexible type of person!

Well anyway! I hope I am welcomed to the site!

Hi LBH and welcome to the boards, :wavesmile:

I am Pam from the UK and was diagnosed with SLE 2 years ago. I am sorry for that your lupus is flaring again but glad that you have joined us. This is a great site with a wealth of information and some pretty friendly people. :)

Have a look around and familiarise yourself and feel free to ask questions. We are all happy to help and there is always someone that can relate to what you are going through.

I look forward to getting to know you.

Take care, :flower2:

Hi Lyn

Welcome Lyn
and nice :)o meet you from U.S. So many of us have problems so diverse like you, so it's good that you can get back to an online group like us. I find the info searches so much help, when d/x from so many health workers is :sad:difficult.
Sorry about your recent surgery, recovery is so hard.
I'm from northcoast Queensland in Australia, where we don't have groups, :worried:eek:r even specialists who can d/x, so have to travel much distance, Plaquenil is helping me :wink2:since Sep. My children have grown, making me nan, and like you I enjoy :lol:reading, writiing poems/articles/short stories, movies, gardening (but out of the sun) and emailing across continents.
I look forward to your posts, :pas we all get to know one another, and how our probs affect us.

Me again!! Sorry pushed wrong key!!

Hi Lynn:)
You are so welcome here!! :)
I am glad you have found this site.
You'll find lots of caring,knowledgeable and supportive people here.
I'm sorry to hear about your back surgery recently & hope that you recover quickly.
One thing about Lupus, we all understand each other and although no 2 lupies are alike, we have all suffered in many ways.
I'm in a Lupus Study at Toronto Western Hospital and hope to share my knowledge with you and others as time goes by.
There is more research and better drugs coming out all the time.
Let's keep hoping that awareness,better treatments & possibly a cure will soon be here!!
Glad to have you join us & I look forward to chatting with you sometime on Chat.
I live in Ontario, Canada.
Regards
Okie
