I just read your post. I want to welcome you to the site. My name is Kathy and I have SLE Lupus and have had it for at least 44 years. I feel sad for you and I do understand how you feel. Lupus is an ugly illness. I know about the hair loss and the face rashes etc. You know though you can not base a relationship on looks. Folks that only go out with a person based on looks are the most shallow baseless people on earth and they are not worth a flip. I have been married for nearly 26 years, so I know that there is hope for you. Please do not give up on life. We are all here for you and we all care about you. Please keep posting.
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.
