Today both myself and Silvermyst attended the Doncaster Lupus Group who meet regularly at a local venue. We would like to thank the whole group for their kindness and warm welcome. We enjoyed a wonderful two hours together having lunch and getting to know each other. It was also so nice to hear from the members that have had this condition a long time and who are managing their condition. It was so reassuring to be able to just feel like we could be ourselves and talk openly about the condition and the changes that it brings.
We were also really touched that we were met at the train station and shown to the venue. The Doncaster members also gave us some ideas for setting up the Sheffield Lupus Group which plans to meet on the 23rd March (more details to follow on this).
Thanks once more to the Doncaster Group and we hope to visit you again at your next meeting on the 9th March. It will also be lovely that once the Sheffield Lupus Group is established to invite you to join us too.
Our thanks too to Lupus UK for making this all possible.
