I was diagnosed with Lupus this past summer. I have been sick for several years but I did not know what whas wrong with me. After several rounds of Prednisone for a back surgery I discovered I only felt well when I was on steroids. It was actually severe pain and overwhelming fatique that caused me to reach out to my doctor to help me find out what was wrong. I thought I was suffering from osteoarthritis from years of training in martial arts and decades of working as a nurse. I was use to being in pain. It is a relief

hi tammi, and welcome.

when first diagnosed, many of us have had to give up most activities.
luckely modern medication, can reverse some of this.

once we are on a good balanced medication, we are still limited, but not always as much.
there are members here who still actively work and play quite hard.

i unfortunatelly am not 1 of these.
i am looking forward to getting to know you through the forum.

welcome.

Hello and welcome to our family. Like you, many of us believe that we suffered from this illness for quite a long time prior to our diagnosis. We were also very relieved to finally be diagnosed and to have a name for all of the things that have been ailing us over the years.
Now that you have a diagnosis, please take some time to roam around our forums here; read the stickys at the top of each forum as they are filled with excellent information, and feel free to join in on any conversation that you like and/or to start a conversation of your own.
You are now amongst people who understand, who truly care, and who want you to know that you are not alone. Again.....welcome.

Peace and Blessings
Namaste
