Welcome to the site. My name is Kathy and I was diagnosed at the age of 36 with Lupus, but have had it for a very very long time before I got diagnosed. I will be 50 in December and they believe that I have had Lupus since around 1965 or there abouts. A very long long time. In my case I guess it was just mild and done got missed until the Lupus fully manifested itself in 1995. I got diagnosed in 1996 when it started affecting my heart muscle and lungs etc. I am glad that they finally figured it out and put me on medication. This is a great site. I hope that you keep posting.
