Checking in after a long absence
linda posted:
Hi I'm linda. I just wanted to drop by to see how many familiar "faces" I would find. Hi Sarah and Jim and Caprice, maybe you remember me, LindaK? My goodness Caprice, you are so pretty. Nice to see your face after so many years.

I miss coming here. Life just gets so busy sometimes. My fibro is still giving me fits just like everyone else's, but I have added the autoimmune kidney disease IGA to the mix. Much more concerning and usually ends in dialysis, etc. Isn't it amazing how many of us have a second autoimmune disease, RA or Lupus or Scleroderma.

Well, I won't take up anymore space, I am going to try to come by more often to say hi and get aquainted with some of you who are new to me. Gentle hugs. Linda K

I do hope that you have asked your doctor to check your Vitamin D it is really important for a lot of us low Vitamin D can make a difference...

I hope you will take the time to read the info under Tips and the right of this page....especially the member toolbox and nutrition and vitamins...

IN GOD WE TRUST....MAY GOD BLESS AND GUIDE AMERICA.... My personal exchanges are Vitamin D and Pain and Wrath of the Dragon....if you care to visit..

You have alot on your pop in when you can... having o go through Dialysis can take up so much of your time..always have to work around it and live around getting to the appointments... my sisters partner has had to to this throughout her life...

You have inner strength and this helps... nice to see you visit...Hugs sweet lady...

We need you here, miss oldie...

I always wish for the *great ones that were here when I arrived...(what 5-7 years ago)....The humor here was so helpful. The info given me on top of what I figured out for myself was so *priceless......
I miss Jan-Fl like my right arm, and wish I had written her into my email book. We were so on the same road.

I hope you stay and keep in touch with all of us. Hugs to you...I hope the weekend is special and today is a good day buddy.....Nancy B
