A new friend of mine recently told me she had Lupus. We write to one another often and it took her a while to share that with me. It is very important to me that I am sensitive to this and I would like to receive any suggestions as to the ways that I might be supportive in our letter-writing. I've started by researching her diagnoses but I'm aware that it's about real people with real feelings in the end and I want to be right on the money with my support. She has had an active life..she's in her 30's..I guess I'm looking for a woman's perspective if that makes sense.
