Hello all,

Just a quick hello and thank you all in one. I joined the other day and since joining have found the community invaluable. I was officially diagnosed on Friday 7th July 2017 with SLE after a week an a half investigation into severe joint inflammation of the hands , swollen lymph nodes in various locations and low platelets-6.

I look forward to learning more about my new self and connecting with others along the way.

I'm still here and I find a reason to fight each day.

Keep going and keep strong.

Best wishes to everyone x
