My name is Lisa I'm 38 and I live near Myrtle beach SC. I have my first Dr appointment next week to hopefully get a diagnosis. My family or friends don't understand the pain I have. Just looking to speak with others who know how I feel

hi lisa,
welcome to our cyber family.

unfortunately many of us have problems with friends understanding.

i hope you are lucky with your appointment.
remember that getting a diagnosis involves ruling out many other possabilities.
sometimes this can take many visits.

please read a few of the posts.
they are our personal experiences with lupus.
add comments where you feel happy to.
or start a new thread.

again welcome.

Hi and welcome! Although I am sorry that you are feeling bad I am glad that you found us. Steve made a great point about diagnosis not always being easy. I hope you get one quickly but be prepared that it can take awhile.

Please look around and make yourself at home. I look forward to getting to know you
