Hi all,

I'm a newbie in the purest form as this is my very first post on any message boards.
I guess I belong in the Not Yet Diagnosed section, although I feel closer to a diagnosis as my Rheumy told me that he thinks I have an autoimmune disease. However, he is sending me for a second opinion at a Lupus clinic, where I'll be poked and prodded by a resident, rheumatologist and immunologist. That's next Wednesday.
I won't go into my symptoms for the moment, but just wanted to finally pop in and say hello, and also to thank you for all the encouragement that you all unknowingly have given me. I've lurked for many months, and frankly have no need to look elsewhere for accurate info. It's wonderful to feel that others truly understand. Thanks again, until next time,
Lady

Hello Lady and welcome :)

Yep, for me too, posting here was the first time I ever posted anywhere. Mind, I still don't post anywhere else!

The information, support and advice here on the boards is great; I have learnt a lot and been wonderfully supported when needed. This is also my only source of support as, where I live, in a very small remote town, they have never heard of lupus and I really don't want to explain.

bye for now,
Katharine
