Jolanda, hi my daughter is three years old and was diagnosed with lupus about 2 months ago after two biopsies. My daughter is now on prednisone and methotrexate, what meds is your daughter on? We have yet too see any real improvement but they say it can take time and also it may just keep it from progressing. I would love to hear more and will pray for you and your daughter.

hi, i'm 15 years old. i've always had lupus. our family copes with it day by day. my mother has it (since birth) and same with my grandma who died a few years ago. is your daughter photosensitive at all? my whole family is extremely photosensitive. i'm sorry that your daughter just got diagnosed at such an age! kids our age should be out, talking with friends, going to movies with cute guys! it's hard, i know, but it's just one of those things that you just cope with. lel
