I am so sorry to hear about your daughter. I am a long time survivor of this illness. I will be 50 in December. Like Beezybaby I was forced to leave school in my senior year. The school told me that because I could not get the rash cleared up on my hands and feet that I was posing a health hazard to the staff, faculty and students, so therefore I had to leave. I left school and took the GED and passed it with the highest grade in the state of NY for the previous 5 years. The Albany State University sent me a letter along with my diploma and told me that I was qualified to take any course that they offered, but I was to sick to take advantage of it.
Your daughter should do ok. They have a lot of different medications that will help her along the way. You see Lupus is cyclic big time. The Plaquenil takes a good 6 months to kick in and work. I have been on it for years and it still helps. I wish you and your daughter the best. God Bless and welcome to the forum.
Lupus for many years. Like most of my life. Sjogrens that started at 35 and Scoliosis, Spinal Stenosis, Degenerative Disc Disease, Osteo-Arthritis of the spine, Ankylosing Spondilitis, Periferal Neuropathy, mild CP and now just recently diagnosed with PA. I had a disc replaced in December of 2007.
Plaquenil, Sulindac, Imuran, Celiac diet, Tramadol and B12 shot once a month.
