My name is Lupe and I live in Plano Tx(dallas area) I have been seeing Dr Alan Brodsky for 4 years and was just diagnosed with SLE. I am 31 years old married with 3 children and work full time and it is a struggle some days and some it is fine. I am glad to have found this site and can't wait to get posting! Take care and God Bless

Thanks Lauri,
Yes I do have lots ot symptoms, i have body aches and sweeling in my ankles and feet quite a bit. I seem to almost always keep a low grade fever and I have been having trouble breathing and chest pains lately. I am still able to work by the grace of God but some days I do not know if I can continue. One day I can feel great and the next day I can be so fatigued that I can barely talk

Hi Lupe;
Welcome to our family. I'm sorry to hear that you are suffering so with your Lupus right now. Many of us can certainly understand the yo-yo experience with Lupus (feeling OK today but totally debilitated tomorrow).
I am glad that you found our site and that you decided to join our family. Everyone here is understanding, informative, caring and always willing to help!

Peace and Blessings
