    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...

    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.

    Battlestar Galactica-- yes!

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