I wanted to say how much i appreciate this site and all of you whom are members. I have found out more information from you all than i have found in any medical library. any time that i have a weird flare or notice a pattern  that this disease seems to follow, there is someone that has had experience with the same thing. it has been helpful not only to manage my symptoms, but to make me feel that i am not alone. most importantly, i have found many others whom have struggled to be diagnosed and taken seriously. learning from your experiences has given me the confidence that i needed to stand up for myself when i was getting blown off by a health care provider. Bless you all.
