This forum has been a life saver for me. There are people in all stages of the disease, some recently diagnosed, some dealing with lupus for years. Everyone is quite generous in giving their time and attention to your concerns and thoughts.
If it hadn't been for this forum, I wouldn't have made a list to take to my rheumy to discuss my symptoms and concerns. I also wouldn't have felt as secure about voicing my concerns and thoughts to my doctor.
I feel like I'm in charge of my treatment now, and that's a good feeling!!
