Healing Wells founder, owner, and administrator, Peter, is in Utah, and the main computer servers are also in Utah. However, the GMT you see is Greenwich Mean Time. Here is a blurb on that: Greenwich, England has been the home of Greenwich Mean Time (GMT) since 1884. GMT is sometimes called Greenwich Meridian Time because it is measured from the Greenwich Meridian Line at the Royal Observatory in Greenwich. Greenwich is the place from where all time zones are measured.
I believe you can set the time zone in your user profile so you can see times relative to your current time zone.
Glad you are seeing the rheumy Friday, worrisome33, but be forewarned you will probably not have all the answers immediately. Lupus, and all the auto-immune diseases, are fairly nebulous and not all that easy to pin down and diagnose. Most of us are treated long before we are diagnosed!
Please don't try and make any huge decisions before you know what is going on, and don't decide for your boyfriend. Lupus doesn't mean you will have a horrible life, there are a multitude of treatments, here is a list of what comes off the top of my head - Plaquenil, Prednisone, Imuran, Cellcept, MTX, Benylsta, IVIG...
Many people have a relatively calm and uneventful time of it -- the people you see posting currently are always heavily weighted to the newly diagnosed and the more seriously affected. The majority get things under control and are out doing other things than posting with us!
My partner & I got together about
a year before my dx, braved some really difficult times together (I had some horrid cognitive involvement), and now my Lupus is quiet and things are going well. So from 2002 to now...
