Hello everyone,
My name is Jaime I am an 18 year old male and I would like to start off by saying that I do not have lupus but my girlfriend of three years was just told two weeks ago by her doctor that he is pretty much positive she has early lupus. Now, she was already diagnosed with Fibromyalgia two years ago and adding this has really taken a toll on her. I am here to learn as much as I can about Lupus so that I can do everything possible to make her comfortable and happy. She was doing some research today and came across statements saying that lupus can be fatal and it immediately scared both of us, how often can this be fatal? I hope to learn many new things and I hope that you can give me all your pointers.

- Jaime
