    Hi funkym

    Welcome! Why not join us on the other forums where all the action is. This is more the introductory zone. Lots of fun on the chit chat zone or more serious on the Living with Arthritis and other zones.
    Look forward to seeing you posting very soon.

    Look after yourself,

    Elna x

    Hi, welcome to the site. I have lupus and RA and a few other things. Don't worry too much about having both, the treatment for both is similar. It is a lot to take in at first. Make sure you only read up to date info on lupus.

    Hope you are having a good day!
