Im from Cape town SA.
Glad to have you on board.

Yes this is a progressive disease.
We do have our periods of remissions as well. when all seems fine.
As well as periodic flare ups.
I think all would agree that some symptoms just come with the "territority"
Like chronic fatigue, headaches, aches pain etc.
The canadian luus org has a free book callled "Lupus:disease with a thousand faces"
It is very informative. Please have a look see.
Remember we are all here for each other. You dont have to be alone.
