hello all my name is Michelle and I was diagnosed 3 months ago which was exactly one month after my 21st birthday!! I am currently in university. I m totally new at facing the symptoms of lupus particularly athritis, fever, nausea, moon-face and hair loss. Being a completely healthy person and a competitive athlete prior to my diagnosis, I had never experiences so much pain and discomfort all at once.

I have had 2 give up on all my outdoor competitive sports due to the excessive sun exposure, joint pains and of coz.. steroid treatment. Wouldn;t wanna be caught for doping hoping 2 learn more abt the condition as i go along and meet more friends whom i can share experiences witAnyone from any where is welcomed to contact me at any time
