Hub bie + kids have been really good, my family are practically doing a rota to 'look' after me when my hubbie goes away next weekend!! Feel a bit wierd still try to get my head around it all, thankfully this site has really helped.:wink2: :worried:

Hello Jo and :welcome:

It can be all rather overwhelming at first :) but don't worry you will get more used to it with time. It sounds like you have a caring family which is great and should comfort you a lot even if you might end up wanting some peace and quiet if they are "watching over" you to that extent :lol:

How does your SLE affect you and what meds have you been started on?

Don't hesitate to ask any questions you may have via the forum and if you want to chat there is a great chat room here. If no-one is in there you can go in and wait a bit, someone usually comes along quite quickly.

bye for now,
Katharine

If you are just mad ,sad, or scared, just come here and post, we are here to help and support you, everyone is.
Have you started your meds? Tell us more about yourself.
