Hey everyone!....My name is Amrita...I'm 18 years old.....I was diagnosed with SLE when I was 7 and I've been living with it since...I'm so glad to have found this forum because I really need to find ppl who can feel what I feel....empathize with me.....It's not sympathy I want .....I hate that!!!....absolutely hate it!....and that's what my parents show towards me!....They make me feel like I'm abnormal....They make me feel handicapped!....Till about a year ago, I had no idea about the details of the disease or my treatment(I know it's surprising)...I never bothered coz my parents would tell me to do this and do that and not do this and not do that....But now I'm sick of being oblivious and I want to know as much as I can.....

Looking forward to your help and support.....
