Hi, I was diagnosed with a 'borderline autoimmune disorder' in 2007 in the UK and confirmed mild SLE in Australia in 2010.
2 months ago we moved back to the UK to be closer to family and I am experiencing my worst flare in a long time.
I've just seen a specialist, had a steroid injection (which is kicking in now, thankfully). He's repeated the full lupus blood screen so just waiting to see those results next week.
My question is, how do other people find the climate in the UK and does anyone have the experience of a comparison with Sydney?
I have an 8 month old and have struggled the last month with him. I never experienced that at all in Australia and fear we may have not fully thought through this move. My specialist out there did advise that a move to the northern hemisphere could impact negatively.
I still have difficulty accepting that I do have lupus. Sometimes the symptoms are so non-descript!
Any comments/experiences/words of wisdom welcome.
