    Smile Hi :)

    My name is Brittany. I'm 17 years old and I have been diagnosed with lupus nephritis as of March 30, 2012. I'm hoping this site will give me the support that I have lost from my "friends" and other school mates. My family is extremely helpful in my illness. Im not quite sure how this site works but I'm open to talk to anyone who needs it

    Hi BEL,
    Welcome to WHL. You will find quite a few young folks like Ritz here who are supportive and friendly.
    We also have plenty of concerned cyber aunties and cyber uncles around here who are always happy to answer questions or be a "shoulder" to lean on.
    Hugs,
    Marla

    Hi Brittany! Welcome the WHL!! I was diagnosed in my freshman year of high school, im now 21, and can say this site has helped me so much when I discovered it over a year ago. I think you will really enjoy this site, I never knew anyone with lupus until this site.

    Hey there Brittany BEL! This is the best site I've found for us all to rant, vent, support each other, just "talk" or whatever, and not be judged.

    Some folks define "Friend" as "one who gives support, assistance; has feelings of affection for; tries to understand;..." - A person you know, who doesn't want to be bothered with you when you hurt or are in need is an "acquaintance". You'll make friends here.
