Hi everyone, my name is Alicia i'm 20 years old and i was just diagnosed with Lupus. As odd as this may sound i'm extremely happy to finally know whats wrong with me, i've been feeling ill for years and have had doctors tell me "i was depressed" and that all this pain was in my head. I don't really know to much about the disease yet given i just found out 2 day's ago that this is what i have.
on a birghter note, i look forward to talking with others who can relate to what i'm dealing with!

We get it... the happy to know, get the diagnose feeling..not odd at all.
Many of us have been on the roller coaster to diagnose and sigh, some still are.
Relief is in knowing, good now lets do something to fix it, feel better and validation that we are not nuts, crazy..all in my head.
Read about, much experience, oodles of knowledge, wonderful care, love and support, and humor here...chat up too...
Keep looking for your wellness. Be well, we all hope, wish and pray.

I'm still waiting for a diagnosis even though I think it's a no brainer. Lupus runs in my family and I have many of the symptoms. For me it would be a relief to have an answer.
This is a warm and a wonder site. I look forward to getting to know you.
