I posted this up in the intros and then saw this forum so here goes....again.

I was diagnosed with Lupus today. I got sick about four weeks ago with severe body pain. Muscle and joints very painful and swollen. The pain quickly progressed to debilitating. I couldnt walk at times from the pain. Opening a water bottle was impossible.I went in last week and they took almost all of my blood(okay only four vials but it sure felt like alot). The doctor put me on Celebrex. I have diabetes also and cannot be on steriods or my blood sugars will go even more out of wack thaen they already are.

I am feeling very weepy and teary eyed. I am 46 years old, am married and have ten children, six who are still at home. Am I going to be able to live a normal life?
