Just came across this site today. Which is odd because I've been googling MCTD for months now. It's nice to know there are others out there in the world who could relate to what has become my life. Although I have frequented lupus and MS boards over the last 9 yrs and had wonderful support.
I am Christina, 37...mum of 3 the youngest is 3 and the oldest is 14. The Dr's have …
