Why me, what's next and I don't want to ride this ride?

The initial thought that came over me as I was told that I had Systemic Lupus was just that..."Why me", "What's next" and let me off this ride. What a ride I am in for. I have been on this rollercoaster for many years, but at least now I have a name of the ride and it's not one of those thrill rides at the amusement park. None the less it is a ride that my loved ones and I are on together. I have always loved the wild rides at the amusement parks, but this is one that I had never expected. So I am buckled in, the bar is pulled down tight across my waist, and off I (we) go. For those of you with Lupus please feel free to join me and we can ride this one out together.

I am PoCo Jo's husband of 25 years. I am her co-pilot on this journey. I have been surprised by the number of people we have met along the way who are also afflicted with Lupus. The common theme for all of them including us is "What Now".
