Hey Manxie !!
Welcome to the forum. SO sorry you are in such a pickle.
When is your rheumy appointment?? Yes it would be great if he saw you at your worst. Don't wear any makeup that day either. Be neat, clean and free of moisturizer and makeup.
If you look at the end of my signature there is a link for "Lupus Resources". There are some good posts in there for newbies and one on preparing for a doctor appointment.
Glad you found us!! Keep us posted.
