I'm 43 married to my wonderful husband Richard for 6 years now. I am raising my 10yo stepson, who i usually refer to as my son. Also have 2 dogs and 2 cats. I live in sunny Southern California, USA. I get to enjoy the sun by looking out the window now.

I have SLE, RA, Scleroderma, Raynauds and Fibro thrown in for good measure. I have been sick since 1988 although I enjoyed a wonderful medicine free remission from 1996 till the beginning of 2003.

Hi everyone - my name is Chris. I'm 38 and I live in the San Francisco Bay Area. I have had Lupus, Fibro, Reynauds, for 6 years and CNS, heart, lung, brain and kidney complications for about 3 years. I used to be an executive with a major insurance carrier, but have been on disability for 5 years. Fortunately I had great disabililty insurance and have SSD.

I have been divorced for 4 years (hubbie couldn't handle the SLE and all that was involved) and no kids, but I do have a wonderful border collie - Samantha- who is a faithful companion wonderful listener and doesn't talk back! Plus she doesn't care if I have to stay in bed all day! LOL

Its great to be part of this community!

Chris

Paul here. I live in Southwest Wisconsin (USA). Right now we are getting a taste of winter. We are supposed to get a little snow sometime in the next couple of days. I only get to look at the sun from the inside of the house, although I do try to get out for my daily walk. I wear a sun protective hat and shirt. I've been on disability for 3 years. I have been married to Grace for 31 years. We have 3 children, all married and out on their own!

Hi I am frilly aka Alicia I live in New South Wales Australia.

Born in Cheshire, lived in Aberystwyth, then nr Manchester. We moved to Australia over 30 yrs ago from Hampshire/Surrey Border.

Have 3 grown up all married children with 7 grandchildren, 5 girls, 2 boys.

Have been married 44 yrs (think if mind working properly for once LOL) He was my school boyfriend and is now my Carer and Guardian.

He does everything for me, housework, hanging out washing, bring it in, sorting it out. Shopping is a chore for both of us. I love it he hates it.

We have to make a list and if it is not on it I am not supposed to buy it LOL. It makes for a terrible experience, he just wants to get home as fast as he can. Keep telling him, it only means we have to go again(g

We have ponds in our garden with huge Koi Carp. of many colours. He has to feed and look after them now as I cannot get down steps easily.

I was dxd 2 yrs ago with CNS/V but have had 3 diff. Chemo treatments all have failed. Still on large doses of Pred. which has cause a cracked pelvis and 4 broken ribs.

Fall about like a drunk and then I cannot get up as weight has ballooned so much in last 2 yrs. My man is marvellous thro all of this, only worries that the weight causes more problems for me not that I have balloon, red face and very overweight.

He still hates taking me shopping LOL

If you want to know more just ask LOL''

hugs frilly

PS none of the icons will post sorry
