My 14 year old sister was just diagnosed
I am 22 and my 14 year old sister was just diagnosed with systemic lupus. I don't really know what to expect or what the right thing to do or say is. She seems to be taking it pretty well, however my mother is blaming herself and I don't really know what to do about her either. I am just looking for any kind of information/support......?
Welcome - Thing are going to be ok
This is a wonderful site for support. Your sister is going to be ok as long as she has a good doc and follows instructions on care. Sounds like she has great family support and that is very important. Your mom should not blame herself. Everything will be ok.
i was diagnosed at 14 also
hi. this is in response to the 22 year old who's sister was diagnosed at 14. i was also diagnosed at 14. i will be 28 on thursday. i like your sister was not too stressed out about it either at that age. as i got older though i began to realize the seriousness of it. it is very important that your sister take care of herself as this will help her when she gets older. i partied in my early 20s and i am paying for it now. let me know if you have any questions i'll be happy to speak to you
