I know how you feel
Hi Kristen! My name is Ana and I'm also 22. I just graduated from college and am having a hard time with lupus too. I've had lots of different health problems the last couple of years, but only in April was I diagnosed with Lupus. The diagnosis process is VERY frustrating. I went to a couple of different doctors and had every test done 3 times! It's hard.... Currently I'm having a hard time finding new health insurance ( I lost mine when I graduated, and I can't be under my parents). I'm also having a hard time finding a job because honestly, I'd call in sick at least once a week.
My advice for you would be to find a new doctor who is willing to call you back within one or two calls. My doctor actually answers his cell phone and calls me every so often to check on me. It's very reassuring!
"Cuz HE! ain't no different from you
N SHE! ain't no different from me
So WE! got to live out our dreams...
We might have to take a break
But ya'll know we'll be back next week"
