Others like me.
Hello. I am a forty three year old female who was diagnosed with Lupus erythematosus and mixed connective tissue disease. Trying to cope with the situation has been very emotional for me. I have four children ranging from ages 23 down to 13. I am so glad I found this site so I can read how others like me deal with this disease. Any advice on how to cope with this would be helpful.
