I am writing a book about lupus for Barnes and Noble that I hope will be of help to the newly diagnosed. I wonder if any of you felt, before you learned that you had lupus, or even now, that your symptoms were "all in your head." Did anyone ever tell you that you were a hypochondriac? I'd appreciate any stories you'd like to share. And, don't worry, I won't use any last names.

Thanks much,
Victoria
