The last three months of my life have been completely different than anything I’ve experienced before. I went out on a limb and started a blog. I opened my private thoughts and feelings to the world. I then created a page where others could talk about their battle with lupus. While running the page, people asked me for a private place where they could ask questions. At first, I referred them to Lupus Support groups but I didn’t feel right about sending them elsewhere and then abandoning them. So, I made up my mind to start my own support group. This is the first time in a long time, when I felt my talents, abilities, and experience were all working together. Everything fell in place and in a week I created a group with over 200 active members.
