Hello everyone!

I live in South Africa in a city/town approximately in the middle of the country...

I was diagnosed with SLE & Raynauds & RA in 1998. Needless to say, I ws under the care of a specialist physician(not a RA specialist though)and received cortisone and methotextrate treatment since 1998 until last year April when I weaned myself off because to me it felt as if I was slowly but surely dying......

I hope we can learn from each other and I would like to give advice which I obtained through many trials and tribulations after 4 back surgeries, 1 knee replacement and 1 neck operation....to mention a few.....

I cannot sit this long so will be writing again tomorrow! Ciao!!!

    Waar oor kom jy in Suid-Afrika, en miskien moet jy probeer en kry 'n groep op en hardloop vir die SA-mense wat Lupus om aan te sluit.
