I am new to this whole blog/forum thing so please bear with me...
My name is Hollie and I'm 30 yrs old and I was diagnosed with SLE about 2 yrs ago. My symptoms were pretty dormant for the first year then last October everything went down hill...like a runaway train. the lupus depleted my body of platelets causing Thrombocytopenia. I was in the hospital for a week trying to get my platelet count back up...went home on a Friday and by Monday I was back in the hospital with the same problem...but this time I got to stay for 5 wks. I am currently taking CELLCEPT & PLAQUENIL & a BI- weekly injection of N- PLATE. But other than that everything is going pretty well.
I'm anxious to meet and get to know others with this condition and am curious if anyone else has had any similar issues.
