Hello Marisa -

While waiting for others to respond I wanted to pop in and welcome you back to the communities!

Keep posting and checking in for suggestions on how to manage this thing called lupus and life!

Also be sure to check our Lupus Health Center and Lupus Community TV if you haven't already done so.

I also wanted to bring this discussion to your attention, maybe you have some support or advice to offer this member about Balancing Parenting and Lupus .

Elizabeth
