Hi! Newly diagnosed and needing support!
Hi everyone! I was just diagnosed with SLE last week after a long struggle. I already have a chronic illness called Lysinuric Protein Intolerance (LPI) of which there are only 7 of us in the US. Now I have Lupus too and I'm having trouble dealing with it. I go through periods where I'm thankful to finally have a diagnosis and times when I'm angry that I now have another illness to deal with for the rest of my life. I need any advice anyone can offer and i look forward to talking to you all!
