    I will let you know if they ever let me know lol they said they'd only tell us if they find anything substantial out of it.

    That really sucks. At least you'll still be graduating on time still! I'd be so mad if all this kept me from graduating. I missed a week of school, came back today, realized I tried to soon =( probably wont be back again tomorrow now. Everything is so frustrating; I'm in all AP classes I can't keep missing school like this =(

    I am too. I just recently got involved with a genetic study at Childrens that is looking at why people like us just randomly get autoimmune diseases.

    It is kind of painful but it is supposed to get better in the next few days (keeping my fingers crossed) I cant imagine having to miss that much school! How did you do it?
    I have been in and out of the hospital all week. They pretty much made me stay all day, sent me home, then I had to come back the next morning. Would have been nice to just get a room lol I avoided being kept there all weekend, but now Im almost wishing they would have just kept me.

    Mine is too =/ especially lately. I just missed a week of school. I have vasculitis in my feet which is why Im on prednisone. I just had TONS of it pumped in this week and just today started getting all puffy in my face =( Its making my knees fill up with fluid or something which is why I cant really walk. Its really annoying. And I think for some people thats probably the case because for some people it runs in families, so you would basically be "born with it" but not have any symptoms until something triggered it.

    That sounds awful. I can relate somewhat though, I cant really walk right now but its from extreme swelling. Im glad to hear you're doing better now though =)

    I've had lupus officially since I was 16. Im 18 now and a senior in high school. Im pretty sure I've had lupus since I was little though, but no one thought much of my "whinning" until my hands and feet started turning purple lol

    What put you in the hospital?
    Feel free to ask stuff by the way, not just me but everyone on here. It took me so long to figure out so much about this disease, and it still has me asking questions all the time.

    So how long have you been dealing with all of this?

    Welcome to the site. Just read your post. Being in high school and having lupus sucks, not going to lie. If you need to rant feel free to talk to me =)

My names Raquel and I'm 17 years old. I was diagnosed with Lupus on November 4th 2010 so as you can see I'm new to this disease. Noone i know really understands what I've gone through so it would be really nice to have someone to talk to who has had the same experience as me. Thanks(:
