Hello. I'm new to this posting thing and the world of lupus. A very special person in my life has just been diagnosed with lupus. It has taken about seven years of pain and worry to find out. It has been hard to watch from the sidelines her disappointment, as well as her humiliation, at the hands of doctors and others who treated her like a hypochondriac. She finally found a doctor who wouldn't give up on her.

I would appreciate any information I can get on what to do for her. She is a very special person who has touched many lives.

Thank you.
