Hi and welcome =) I dont know if I still fall into the teen catagory lol but Im 18 and was diagnosed when I was 16. I really hope your mom starts to realize how important your meds are. She needs to know that being on them is doing a lot more for you than being off them. They are unfortunately our only option to be healthy (mostly healthy).
Im on Medrol, Cellcept, Plaquenil, Norvasc, Prilosec, Baby Asprin, Mobic, and currently an antibiotic for yet another infection. I hate pills, but I take them.
