Where do I start? Up until two months ago, I was a healthy, normal woman in my twenties without a care in the world. My life came crumbling down at that time, because I was diagnosed with Systemic Lupus Erythematosus. At 26, I am now dealing with a horrible, scary disease that can potentially prove to be fatal. What do I want from you? I don't know, really... I just wanted to share my story, and perhaps receive some support from others, who are in the same situation. The worst is that my friends have run a mile to avoid me, right now, when I need them most, because they don't know what to say and are scared. I really need a listening ear right now!
