Lori, I appreciate your story and your desire to help others. Many, if not most, of us on this forum are here because we need support, but also because we want to help others who suffer from AI diseases. I hope you'll jump into other threads and help that way.
fragileheart, what you say makes a lot of sense and I'm glad you found the forum. Why don't you start your own thread here and introduce yourself and tell us more about yourself. There are other women here your age that will be great support for you. And finally, hang in there! There is life after lupus.
