New to this message writing,so forgive errors. Diagnosed correctly with lupus couple years now, but was misdiagnosed for 8 or more years. Just want to start conversing with others that can relate. My kids and husband try, but are unable to really understand the way this disease messes with every part of your being. Hope and pray for cure soon! Tired of medicines that sideeffects are almost worse then the Lupus. Sorry about all the complaining!:)

Hey Katroach,

Don't appologize for complaining. We all go there at times. My kids don't really understand, either. This forum is the place to go. The one thing I like about this forum is I can say my fears or how I feel and it is understood or at least sympathized with. Whatever you have there is someone who will understand.

hi katroach,

there is one great thing here.....no one complains. We all do some justified venting. No matter how supportive friends and family are, they just can't understand how life-consuming this disease is.....that is what each of us is for.

welcome, look forward to learning more about you,
