It looks like I might be the first to post here. It took me a few minutes to figure out how to get in here. I had to go to the old discussion board. Hopefully everyone will find their way in here. Debbie

Welcome to the new group. It does take a little getting used to, but pretty easy once you figure it out....Any help you can provide to others is welcome....Joan
Well Debbie, you beat me to it being first to post here. Someone may remember I was the first person to sign up on the other forum when it changed over from the very old style forum. It was hard to change over, but in the end it worked so much better. Just did not get here quick enough this time ay!
Has this been planned for a while? Must look in more often!
Diagnosed with ITP in 1983, lupus in 1990, APS in 2001, vasculitis in 2006. Current platelet count 148. In 2007 I had a stem cell transplant for autoimmune disease and currently ITP and APS remission, with a reduction in lupus activity.

Hi there, although I'm Kim here, no longer Kimil, figured I have not lived in IL for so long, I should drop the il, but it's me, now just Kim and I'm from Wisconsin, been here 5 years, so now is a good time to change and since I was one of the first to register, I get to be Kim. I had to be Kimil on the other forums, because there was another Kim.
I like the new forum boards, seems easy to me, except for a few little things I'll have to get used to. I don't like having to log on each time and I wish when I clicked the link in the email notice it would just take me there, without having to log on. I find it easier to read through the posts and I love the option for email notice when someone posts to a discussion I'm following.
Hi Jenuk, This has been planned for a while but it happened all of a sudden. I was surprised. I was only the first person to post on the Social Chat site here. I hope people will like this format and find it easy to use. I am getting used to it. Have a good week-end, Debbie
