Hello all, I am in my late 20's and was diagnosed with lupus for a few months now.
I am actually trying to lose weight, yeah I know, crazy huh? Lol, no, but I also have PCOS, and hypothyroidism so I think at least one of those should get better if I lose the weight : ).
I went through a LOT of pain before I realized it wasn't just muscle aches and should go to the doctor, they took a while to know what it was, but finally they diagnosed me.
I felt really enraged, and I am now in the "ok well I am not gonna let it rule my life"-stage.
My pain is still there a little, specially when it's cold, but I deal with it, my live is inflamed so I don't want to take any anti-inflammatories if I can help it.
So here I am, I didn't know this forum existed and I am happy to find others who understand what I am going through...

PS-You're a sassy nerd, and I'm a sci-fi geek! Birds of a feather...
Thank you Rob! I suppose we flock together huh? What sci-fi do you like? I love Star Trek, but also like Star Wars : ).
The Following User Says Thank You to sassyNerd For This Useful Post:
I'm into Star Trek and Star Wars too. I'm also into Battlestar Galactica (the re-imagined version), and ALIEN (Prometheus was awesome). I collect toys, models, figures and props from all of them. It's fun stuff. Makes me feel like a kid again, and helps me temporarily forget about all the autoimmune stuff. In my former life, I had the opportunity to built a couple of guns that were used in the first Matrix film. Got to be on set for a day. It was sci-fi Nirvana.

And no nerdy discussion should fail to mention Buffy the Vampire Slayer. In my opinion.
