My name is Pamela, i am 27 and i was diagnosed with Lupus 8 years ago but after being in the dark all this time i need to learn more and try to manage my conditions on a daily basis. i wrote a long story on my background but im not sure if it is ok to post in a hello thread!

i would love some advice or to hear from others who have busy lives (i have a full time job where i am away from home for 11 hours a day and 4 year old son who constantly keeps me on my toes!) while trying to manage fatigue and muscle, joint and bone pain.

Looking forward to trying to get on top of this disease and finally being able to talk to others who know what im going through (and that im not just lazy and weak!)
