I was diagnosed w/SLE Lupus May 15, 2013. To say the least it has truely been the worst thing ever. To go from a fully functional athlete, coach & working on my job for 21yrs to being over weight & being terminated because my FMLA is up has been a nightmare. All the meds, side effects & conditions are insane. Despite having other organs being affected I hav to believe that this to shall pass! My thing now is to fund a new doctor & a better climate to live in preferrable in the Arizona area.
