I just wanted to say thank you to everyone and this forum. In just a short time, five days to be exact, I feel as though I have gotten a huge part of my life back. Although for the past two years moving forward I knew I was feeling horrible, but, I never truly comprehended how horrible I was feeling. Now that I have been dx'd and a treatment plan formulated, I feel like I haven't felt in years! My pain is minimal, my energy is tremendous compared to just five days ago.
This is all do to your encouragement, experiences and advise. I can remember the days I felt as though I was going out of my mind due to the way I was feeling and just wanting to give up.
All of you are my strength and I have come to rely on this forum.
I just wanted to say Thank You~

glad you are feeling better, sometimes just knowing what is wrong can help enourmously because our stress and worry goes down once we can say oh, this is causing symptom x,y,z and this treatment will make it all better if I give it time. I know that for me knowing what is wrong is a major thing because it helps me know what to expect and what I should be doing.

Hi Mom. I'm so glad ur improving. I've belonged to this forum for a couple of years and I still find the folks absolutely wonderful. I went to a local lupus support group last week and I'm not sure I'll go back. My friends at HealingWell often go thru nasty flares just like I do and I can relate to them so easily. Last summer a few of us from the atlanta area met in person which was great. I hope u continue to stay a member of our forum and I look forward to hearing how ur doing- good or bad. Love, Butterflake
