Lupus is a chronic disease, meaning that it is a disease than can last for years or may never go away. The primary purpose of treatment is to alleviate some of the symptoms, to avoid a flare-up, and to reduce inflammation. There is no cure for Lupus, so in a small sense, what your doctor said is true. However, the outlook is not nearly as bleak or hopeless as she presented it. There are many of us for whom treatment has been quite successful and we are able to maintain some form of normalcy in our lives.
Appropriate treatment combined with necessary life style changes and taking precautions to avoid those things that can worsen your symptoms, can permit you to have a long and relatively normal life with this disease.
We are here to help you and please know that you are not alone.
Peace and Blessings
