i am a male from australia.
i am 50 years old and have had the effects for over 30 years.
i have only been diagnosed about 3.
lupus is not the death sentence that it used to be.
that scared the ##### out of me, when i first tried finding out real facts.
all the statistics are scarey.
but with todays modified medications..... many of us hope to live to a ripe old age.
our lifestyles will be adjusted, but we will still be here.
