Hi, my name is Fran and I am 22 years young. I was recently DX with Lupus July 19, 2011. I'm pretty sure I have had this disease since I was 14 years old because looking back at all the times I was in and out of the hospital, it all makes sense. Doctors would always send me home saying I just have a "virus" or a bad case of the flu. I was very frustrating not knowing what's going on with your body! it was times was just dying slowly because all these different unexplained problems kept happening to me. Now that I know I have Lupus its a HUGE relief for me, although I don't know whats next. I been having a flare up for the past 4 months and it is just awful! Its crazy how this disease change you life so quick. I joined this site so that I can learn different stories and meet other people that are going through the same thing.
Thanks for reading!
