Hi, I have been diagnosed with Lupus since 2002. I have experienced many challenges during this time. First off, my doctor who originally diagnosed the disease unfortunattely had a stroke and that started the long frustrating road of the doctor trail. Each doctor I see just seems to listen selectively or really quick to put me on additional meds. when I question, the answer is always, " well, we just dont know. My issues have escalated to the point where I have now lost my job. My current rheumys answer was "well, chalk it up and go on disability" I tried to explain to him that this isnt my goal and again my concerns were drowned out by his own personal opinions. I could continue all night long with the terrible experiences, but I will end it here and just say, ARHHHHG!!!! What am I supposed to do at this point, at the end of my rope!
