Hi! Robyn, and everyone,
I think I am a 'middler', and I con't to find this forum a comfort. And as we all know, some days are way worse than others. Please don't give up on us, I know I relied on the 'oldies' to share their insight and advice with me. It seems that recently, (and I think because of better recognition by drs.), more people are being diagnosed and that is a good thing, and treatments are getting better. So we are seeing more 'newbies' here. I noticed that today there are 195 pages of topics, dating back to 3/07, available on our lupus forum. I remember finding it very helpful, back when I was first diagnosed in 2005, to read old threads, and take notes about info I found pertinent to me. Maybe that would help you, too? Don't give up on us, we are truly all in this together. I am planning on feeling better.....mid August??? Many days I skim the topics and simply don't have the energy to type. I even tried to bribe my cat to type for me. (didn't work)
keep posting and hang in here with us,
God knows, even if I don't....
