    Unhappy Hi everyone! :)

    I'm new here, and actually just got diagnosed with Lupus yesterday.. after months of tests. It's slightly a relief to know that they finally figured out whats been making me so sick, but I was really hoping it was something else.

    My name is Elizabeth. I am 21 years old. I came to the forum to try and find people who can relate to what I'm going through and maybe help me cope with it some.

    Thanks for reading, Have a great day.

    You felt the same way I did when I first found out I had lupus. I was glad I finally had a name. But afraid too because, I had heard of lupus. But I didn't know what It was. I ask the doctor does that mean I going to die. He told me it's not like that and most people with lupus live normal a life span.
    But they that wait upon the LORD shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings as eagles; they shall run, and not be weary; and they shall walk, and not faint. Isaiah 40:31

    Take Care,
    Becky

    hi elizabeth,

    welcome to the forum. you will find the members to be compassionate and knowledgeable. there are many symptoms of lupus, and it effects each person differently. whatever you are experiencing, or whatever questions you have, someone here will be able to help.

    so sorry about your diagnosis, i hope you have a good rheumatologist, who will work with you about treatment options.
    Phyllis

    hi elizabeth, my name's samantha. i was diagnosed a few weeks ago and i'm 22 years old. i can relate, as most of us can. we're here to talk with you and cheer you up and support you through the tough times. feel free to ask and complain and read up on things. anyway, welcome.
    I'd rather be hated for who I am, than loved for someone I'm not.
