Hi everyone, my name is Jennie and I'm a 21 year old student in Cheltenham, England. I was diagnosed with Lupus at Christmas and have good days and bad days like you all i guess. However this week has been the worst it has ever been just because of the pain in my legs and chest and my lack of energy. I am normally a very enthusiastic and adventurous person and there are so many plans I have for travelling etc but now I feel like I can't do any of that as I can barely walk to the Uni campus this week. I know that I will feel better again in a few days but it just gets me down sometimes that I can't lead the active life I had anymore. How do you pick yourselves up again? and also do you find that a lot of people don't know what Lupus is and so don't understand what you're going through so you just don't tell anyone?
Thank you for reading this, Jennie
