    Default i cant accept what happened

    It seems as though its been years since my older sister was diagnosed with SLE, yet its barely been 10 months. This is really difficult to deal with. I cant concentrate on anything anymore, i constantly worry about her...I cant accept that this has happened. Too much to take in at one time. I love her too much to see her so sick all the time. I wish i got lupus and not her, i miss the my the old KC. The way she laughed and always talked and never got off the computer because she would get into her novels she was writing, and she would always want to talk about them to me and tell me everything and was always so energetic, and happy. She is just so different now with lupus. I'm worried that she will be like this the rest of her life. I don't want that, no one in my family wants that.

    I understand about it being hard and I'm not sure if this will help but ill give it a try

    Even if she's not feeling up to it maybe you can talk to her about her story ideas. I know you can't bring it all back the way it used to be but maybe bringing some of those little things back that she loved to do. It might cheer her up

    It is so nice of you to be there for her. While it is very difficult for us to adjust it is hard on family and friends as well. Just like many Lupus patients need to find a professional to speak often our families do as well. It is a hard adjustment for all of us. We will be here to try and help as we can. Welcome to WHL

    Having the love and support of family is just as important as any medicine....I know you can't make the Lupus go away, but I am sure your love and support is a huge help to your sister....
