Hi everyone!

I figured some of you would have experience with this, either yourselves or family members.

My mom has just been told she either has Lupus or Sjogren’s after maybe 5 years of not feeling right, not feeling well, and having all sorts of different skin issues. As of right now she’s in the process of scheduling the next appointments as her primary is setting her up with the head of the Rheumatology department at the hospital she goes to.

So. Here's what I'm wondering. Considering your past experiences with something of this nature, what ways can I be helpful? As far as specific support and maybe things that are helpful in managing the problem?
