I am a new member. I was diagnosed with lupus when I was 12. I am now 35 and becoming more frustrated with this disease everyday. I am looking for others that share this disease and the everyday problems that accompany it. I guess I am looking for a place to vent where people will understand what it's like living with this disease. I am also looking for treatment options that don't include Prednisone and the conventional treatments. I am open to any suggestions at this point.

Hi pobear! Welcome to our family. I was diagnosed when I was 11 and I am now 27. Feel free to vent anytime. Hopefully others can offer you a wider range of medications they are on. I have been on prednisone since I was diagnosed and now I also take plaquinel and cellcept. I've also been treated with cytoxan and rituxan for my kidneys. I hope someone can offer you more of what you are look for.
