Hi my name is Saeko! I just turned 19 a few days ago. Yay! I was diagnosed with SLE when I was 13. My life has took a 180 since then. I still have my ups and downs but I try to get through it everyday. I really want to make with friends who maybe understands my feelings. I hope to talk guys real soon!

Welcome to WHL. I'm one of the grandmas on the board, but you will find quite a few young people here, too.
I've visited Hawaii twice and LOVED it! Do you live on Oahu? That is the only island I've visited.
My hubby had a military trip to Hickam AFB, so the AF paid for us to stay on Waikiki - lucky me!!
I really loved the drive around the island.

Welcome to the WHL and it will be nice getting to know you also.
You sound like you know what to expect well from one day to the next, i was born with it and over the years diagnosed with seizures and so on connected to it from when i was 14yrs old but it's only been the last to years since my skins gone bad with the raynauds, that they've run tests and finally told me i have it. I find it disgusting that alot of us go through years of bad symptoms before they'll actually do something or something bad as to happen to a person.

Hi Saeko!! I noticed that your name is Japanese, are you Japanese? I was born and raised in Tokyo! I'm 20, turning 21 in May, but seems like you have more experience with lupus than I do!! If you have facebook, look me up and we can be friends :D
