Hey Everyone! My name is Nikki, and I'm 23 years old. I've had Lupus for almost 8 years... Wow, I don't think I ever realized just how long I've been sick. I was only 15 when I was diagnosed with Lupus Nephritis. I went into VERY BAD depression. I wanted to kill myself, and I even tried to kill myself. Thank the LORD that I met the right people, and kept on living.

Here I am today, 23 and doing really well. I just went to the doctor a few weeks ago. My levels are looking great :) I feel good, I mean don't get my wrong... I still have my days. I've been really depressed lately, and I think it's because I need more friends that know what I'm going through. I think I've found the best place to do so too! :) I can't wait to meet you all!!

Nikki - do you find that your symptoms increase with weather change, I do, and it kind of give me a method of forcasting when I'll have a bad day. Lets me plan a little, not to expect to do strenuous or complicated work if there is to be a barametric change.
