Hello everyone! I am 21 years old and have had lupus for 3 years but this is my first attempt to contact anyone who might understand what I am going through. I am in my 4th year in college and it gets really hard being away from home with this disease. I just want people to talk to and who can relate. Hopefully I will be talking to some of you soon! Take care
