Hi everyone, I'm new to the forum but just wanted to share a few thoughts. I wonder how many of us wake at night feeling alone and afraid, waiting for the next new symptom or weird feeling. If you find yourself in this situation, send a thought or even a prayer to all the others experiencing similar feelings - lupus and all the other auto-immune conditions can be so scary and the fear and pain always seems to be magnified at night! We are all in the same boat - hopefully paddling back to calmer waters in the near future. Blessings to you all.
