    Default Hey y'all!

    Hello everyone. My name is Hannah and I just turned 18 five days ago! And I have just been diagnosed with lupus. (as well as some other junk) I dont know much about how severe or not severe my case is. The doctor says they can't take me till April. But I am trying to find a different doctor to get me in sooner. Anyway, just wanted to introduce myself. I hope all is well with all of you (:

    hi hannah and welcome.

    there is unfortunatelly quite a few others your age here.
    i say unfortunatelly, because it is a long journey when you get it so young.

    i have had it since about 15, i am 50 now.

    please read a few of the older posts.
    they are our personal experiences with lupus, and other issues.
    there is also a teen forum, if you want to use that.

    again welcome.

    Hi Hannah,
    Welcome to WHL. As Steve told you, we have a few teens here. Several of them are juggling college and AI diseases.
    I hope that Ritzbit returns soon - she could help you a lot.
    Feel free to read threads and stickys and ask questions. We'll try to help.
    Hugs,
    Marla
