Very well said Helen. I think there is a fantastic community here that is so friendly and supportive. I'm glad that you are finding the site so beneficial.


Helen, its so lovely to think we are all here to help each other - it doesn't matter how long since being diagnosed, we can still be so supportive.

Our walks along the lupus path have their ups and downs and it is great to know there are listening ears and helping hands that really understand.

I second that that thank you to everyone that makes this site such a valuable resource. :D

Fairly new to this myself but,it has been so nice to know there are other people out there who really do understand what you are going through.Really glad for you.


Keep well Helen and i hope you will keep in touch

Love & Sunshine


I totally agree this is a wonderful site to meet people with the same problems who actually understand what we're all going through. Hope your well. x


how very true!!!

i imagine we have all felt pissed off, sad, alone, helpless, angry and every other emotion in between since we were all first diagnosed, i know I have and still do sometimes so, yes, it is so incredibly beneficial to have somewhere to go and someone and sometimes even many others, who understand and can show empathy.

It is helping me greatly and long may it last......equally i hope to be able to make the path a little easier for at least one other person on the same path.

have a wonderful day my new found friends xxx

You sound quite happy and your log has cheered me up a bit.I look forward to feeling bit better about all this too.x
