Hi All, I was glad to find this team. I have numerous autoimmune diseases and am currently undergoing diagnosis for yet another one. I have been in a flare for nearly a year and start Cytoxan infusions Tuesday to try to get my immune system under control. Keeping exercising and keeping my weight down has been tough this year because of the illness. I "start over" a lot but that is better than quitting! Looking forward to getting to know the members here, Patty
