Hey and welcome to the site

Your boyfriend is obviously very supportive, finding the site for you, that's great and will help lots. Everyone here is great and have a wealth of experience and knowledge to share. It is like an extended family. Everyone's Lupus experience is slightly different, but it is nice to know you are not alone. In the beginning I felt a little isolated and lonely, still do sometimes.

So how are you?

Take care

Claire

Hello Bacardi Brown,

Glad you found us. Lupus can be isolating and we do all need each other. You will fit in here fine.

bacardibrown,

Welcome to the site. I am Tammy and have had lupus for about 17 years now. I am still learning and this site is a good place to talk with other, ask questions, share info, and make new friends. There is a chat room that we visit from time to time hope to see you in there sometime. It can get a little crazy in there sometimes and we laugh a lot so grab the tissues and joint us anytime.
Tammy
