I'm Micha, newly diagnosed. I'm 28 and have two small children. My doctors suck and things aren't much better.

Welcome to the forum! What type of SLE do you have? I know how hard it is to find a good doctor. I went to one in Colo Spgs before I found my current dr. Have you looked around and talked to your PCP?

Welcome, dear. I hope you're feeling a bit better by the time you read this. We're all here, listening and supporting each other - a wonderful source of comfort, information and strength!
As far as those docs - yes, a lot of them do suck. Keep looking Do NOT put up with what I call "idiot docs" - ones who won't listen, ones who won't explain, ones who only give you 4 minutes of their time. You deserve better. If you keep looking, you WILL find one who is competent, listens, compassionate and who will help you get on the right track.
Hugs - and I'm glad you're found us ~
