Hi all! I have just been diagnosed with Lupus . I've had APS for about 15 years and am doing pretty well. Well this Lupus thing has really thrown me for a loop .The meds are calming everything down . Ever since I told my family about the Lupus diagnosis they all treat me like I'm dying. No one really made a big deal about the APS and the hospital stays. Granted, I don't really talk about my medical stuff but am I missing something? Is this Lupus worse than I think? I have been working with the Rheumatologist and have a plan. I was just assuming , if I kept on top of it like I have for the APS it would just be another new normal to get used to. Thoughts?
