I am 53 years old, with one daughter and 2 grandchildren> I have systemic Lupus with Raynards. I am a retired banker or I had to quit because my lupus got so bad that I had to give up a job I love and I know am on disability. I have a lot of trouble dealing with this. I have worked all my life and it is hard on me drawing disablity. My husband left me after 31 years of marriage for another women. She was a bartender. I thought my life was over, it took me 31/2 years of grieving, crying, feeling sorry for myself to understand that God had another plan for me in life. I met a wonderful man who is great to my only daughter and son-in-law, and is wonderful to my grandchildren who are the love of my life. I am hoping to meet people on this web site who have illness's they are having to deal with and just to get inspiration from this site. I love people and I have already read some of their stories and my life seems so easy and simple compared to what some of the stories I have read. I would love to join the web site dealing with the pain and up and downs of my lupus. Also I would love to start pray changes for people in my area who are in need of prayer from others. I truly believe prayer chains work. I am very excited to get started. I have emailed this site to many of my friends or family who are going through things that they need help with.
