My name is Tiffany. I am 23, married with 2 stepchildren. I got diagnosed with SLE august 1. My mother also has SLE and is currently battling SLE, lymphoma, and stage 3 leukemia. I am trying to stay stron but find it nearly impossible. I live in Las Vegas NV in the Silverado Ranch area and am looking for meetings or support groups or something. Anxiety is a very big issue right now, and fatigue. My skin is getting pretty discolored, its like i am loosing pigment. i need help.

Hi Tiffany:
Welcome to our family. I am not too far from you. I am in Victorville which is about 2.5 hours South of Las Vegas. I am sorry to hear that you are suffering right now and that your mother is having so many serious issues. I know that this must be causing an extreme amount of stress for you and I am sending you a cyber hug.
I have copied and pasted a post by one of our members, Rose, sometime ago about a Support Group in Las Vegas:

"Las Vegas, Nv. now has a Lupus Support Group meeting held at the Clark County Library
1401 East Flamingo Road, Las Vegas, Nv. 89119. The next meeting is on Saturday Feb 28 at 10:30 am. The meeting is sponsored by the Arthritis Foundation and is open to the public. For more information please call 595-0313.
Rose "

Let me know if this is helpful or if you need anything further. In the meantime, we are here to help you as much as we can. I am glad that you found us!

Peace and Blessings
