Hi all, I've just joined and been reading some of your posts and your all pretty fab how your dealing with things, me? Not so much!. I got poorly in May, it's taken me until now to get my GP to investigate Lupus, I had a negative ANA and thought that was it, until today when my endo has referred me to a rheumatologist and I have to have a DNA strand test. I'm scared senseless! I'm a mother and I'm so worried what the future holds for myself and my children if I'm diagnosed with SLE which my endo thinks highly likely. Obviously I have so many things going through my mind, is it fatal (I did ask and got the standard speech of depends how it progresses etc) so I'm feeling ever so hopeless at the moment! , so I guess my question is to you all how did you all cope? In the beginning? With the not knowing? (if you have read to here thank you! I'm sorry if it seems like a pity party I don't know where else to turn at the moment) x
