Hi there everyone , whenever you wanna chat i'll be here for you.
I've been livin with lupus for 10 years now. I had a especially bad time during my teens, none of my friends know. Up until today only a number of people in my life know about my status.
I feel exremely lonely. Not bein able to speak to anybody about my illness.

I can understand what it's like not wanting to share with others. Either because you can think of how to explain it or because you fear that they cant relate or because you dont want anyone's pitty. At least these were my main reasons for not sharing with those close to me about lupus. However, i can tell you that in my case, it made things so much better. i didnt have to hide it anymore, or pretend to not be sick aroudn my friends. Who and when to tell is of course up to each individual, but i can at least share with you that it worked out well for me.
This is a great site, and everyone is very friendly and here for each other. Hopefully we can all help and make you feel less lonely :)
If you cant talk to anyone else, this is always a great place to vent! We'll be here for YOU.
Feel better :)
