oy, i feel your pain! i'm 23, recently graduated college, and now i'm a grad student. it is HARD. sometimes i'm just so tired and in so much pain that i feel like i can't keep up, and grad school is very demanding. sometimes i just break down. i've been considering joining a support group for lupus or something, and maybe you should too. i would love to meet people in person who are going through what i am because i really don't know anyone who has lupus. just a distant friend of a friend... which doesn't really help me too much.

i hope things get better for you very very soon.
