From what I've read here, it looks like Lupus effect each person differently. I've had all sorts of "flares", they seem to happen every 5-10 years. Being told I had Lupus was actually a relief. Isn't that crazy? It answered the question of "why are all these medical conditions happening to me. The list of destruction is long. Adding the lupus meds to my long list is disheartening. My main problem is taking all these meds 3 times a day and trying to remember what I took. Actually reading about the brain fogs, I think someone called it that, was very helpful. Short term memory loss can be chalked up to every single thing that's now wrong with me.

I want to thank the ones behind the scenes here for being here.
