Hi every one my name is Kishalya Padiachey I'm from South Africa.
I was diagnosed 3 years ago with sle including vasculitis.
I have come to terms with the illness and have growen and learnt much.
At first i was very deppressed especially since using certain medication that increased my weight and gave me hair loss.
Now that i don't let it rule my life. I,ve noticed that this life that we are all living is actually wonderful it's what we make out of it. I have many dreams in which i intend to live. I'm 20 years old and i feel good.
If you feeling down or depressed email me, i've been through it all i know what it's like.
smile more often and you will be suprised at how great you will feel
It's really nice to read a young girl with sush a possitive attitude! Let me tell you that you've got what we need the most, so I know that you will always beat the wolf! I 'm that kind of person that thinks that only with positive attitudes and thoughts we can go through life. I'm 46 yrs and had been suffering all the lupus complications since I was 3 but diagnosed in my twenties. I've learned to live one day at a time , and I really appreciate even the bad days , because if theren't are bad days then I shouldn't appreciate the good ones so much. So welcome my dear friend, and keep thinking the way you do, it will make your path through life more easy and enjoyable!!
