This is a good article about a doctor in Canada who was diagnosed with lupus even though her ANA and other blood work was negative. She decided to speak out and try to raise awareness.

HI Bee,
That is a good article. Thanks for posting the link.  If a doctor thinks this is a strange disease, no wonder we all feel completely overwhelmed. 
I'm going to see what I can find about that World Lupus Congress in Vancouver for May of 2010.  Wouldn't it be cool if we could all meet there and learn more about our disease and meet one another! 

Here's a link the International Lupus Congress in 2010.  Not much info yet.

There was one in 2007, in Shanghai.
