Hi!! My name is stephanie, but you can call me tefy, I've had lupus since I was 15, but I didn't found out until january this year, I spent 6 years of my life thinking that I had arthritis, beacuase that was the first diagnose the doctors gave me, I changed doctor and he told me that I never had arthritis, that I actually have lupus, that I always have, fortunately when he found that out, the disease was already on remision, it's been been a painful journey to travel, I'm fine at times, but sometimes it's just hard, that I don't know if i'm gonna make it, when I finally start to feel healthy and strong, a new disease derived of lupus pull me down again. I just found this site on google a few minutes ago, I think it will be nice to share experiences with people that truly understand the disease.
hi tefy, and welcome to people who understand.
it is such a relief to know why things go wrong with us.
please read a little of the older posts.
they are our personal experiences with lupus.
ask questions or add to posts when you feel appropriate.
Hi and welcome to WHL! I am sorry for the delay but I have been in and out.
I am so glad that you found us. Although we can't fix the disease it is nice to know that you are not alone because this disease SUCKS sometimes (all the time?). Please make yourself at home and welcome to the WHL family. We are glad to have you with us
Success is not final, failure is not fatal: it is the courage to continue that counts.
