I was also told that when I was diagnosed last June. I already have two children, and they are older, 9 and 11, but it was hard to hear that I was not going to be having any more. I am only 33. I understand that it is probably harder if you do not have any children already. I was also upset because I explained that we were considering adopting and both my primary doctor and my rheumy advised against it because they think that the stress of another child, even without the pregnancy, would be too much for me. I am still very sad about it.
I am sorry that this is happening for you. Please feel free to talk to me anytime.
