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.
Thanks so much (:
