Hello All! My name is Lawren and I'm 21 years old! I've had Lupus for about 8 years now. When I was about 13 I was diagnosed with Lupus Nephritis and had to endure weeks of dialysis. I really thought my life was going to be over. However, GOD blessed me and my kidneys began working on their own again! I've done quite well since then and I can only thank GOD everyday for that. Of course there are still the doctor visits, blood work, and meds but I'm here and I'm feeling great and that's all that matters! I was so excited when I found this site because no one truly knows what you've been through unless they've been through it too! So I'm excited to chat with you all! :D
