Hello Burrows and welcome :)

Getting a diagnosis of lupus will indeed take time to sink in. It's not something you get used to overnight, even for those who have waited a long time for a diagnosis and who are, in some ways, relieved to finally have a name to put to their symptoms.

We have a wonderful forum here, with fantastic, supportive and caring people who will all be here to help you on your way and answer any questions you may have.

As you read through the boards just try to remember that most of the posts that you'll read here are written by people like yourself who are newly diagnosed, or the "not yet diagnosed" and also those who the disease affects more severely. Just to say that you shouldn't be frightened by what you read. There are loads of people out there who have lupus but who are far too busy living their lives to come and spend time with us here.

How does lupus affect you? Did you have difficutly getting diagnosed?

bye for now,
