Wow. I know it's a hard thing to wrap your head around isn't it. But also a relief to know what it is that you have. I"m so glad you are here to share with us and get the suppport you're going to need. I agree. This board has been a blessing to me too. I've been here for a long time now. I think about 4 years. Maybe longer! Take the time you need to reflect on this new life you will have. We're always here for you, any time.
Do you like your new rheumy? How long have you been on your new meds? I have heard great things about plaquenil. I hope it works really well for you! Lots of members here are on it.
Looking forward to getting to know you more!
