    I am a new to this website and is hoping to have a great welcoming and comfortable feel about it. I have never blogged or gotten on any forum before but I will like to welcome myself and my name is SunkissedLupus. I am 20 yrs old I was diagnosed March 2010. Have had multiple issues with my Lupus but I am dedicated to making it work. Living with Lupus is my life but I will and shall become someone dealing with this silent killer. It will not defeat ME. So here I am SunkissedLupus.

    Thank you,
    Do you have Lupus as well ? I am searching to find a mutual friend to discuss Lupus topics ? I hope you're having a good day and thanks for the response.
