Oh Laura07, don't cry. We're here for you. Your story sounds like mine. I was only diagnosed March 06, so, this whole new lifestyle is brandnew to me as well. I, too, don't have much of a support system. I still think at times that my family thinks I'm a hypochondriac, that I'm making all this up, and its just in my head. :roll: They just don't understand. I hear this a lot, "But you don't look sick..." If they only knew how I feel in the inside. Looks can be deceiving, but this disease is like that. I was in denial myself for a while. Lupus, how did I get it? All the changes I feel happening to my body, is too much to handle at times.
So, Laura, whenever you need to vent or if you have any questions, please ask. You have a new friend... :BIG: And I'm here for you. You're not alone. We'll go through this together, ok?
