I thought about asking to be moderator too. It was one of the things listed that we could use to help the forum. but I do not think that I can handle it myself. I do not post often enough. I tried to post to many people, but just could not Keep it up. Some days I would do ok, but most days I could not even read sometimes the posts sent.
I admire you Ginny and the others who can take on the action of moderator.
Have no idea what this rheumatologist will say when I go back to see him this month. He seems to find way to prove it is not lupus, not that it is lupus. I am on disability, I have medicaid, I am not going back into the work force, so why is he doing this. I am going to ask him. He seems to ignore the things that I do tell him. so what good is he? My regular doctor can prescribe plaquinil. why is the rheumy needed? That would be one less doctor to have to go visit. more tests that doesn't have to be done. I see no reason to continue this.
