Hello everyone, I'm new to this site, as well as newly diagnosed with discoid lupus, although I have many SLE symptoms, I haven't went to a Rheumatologist yet to test for SLE. Having discoid lupus is hard enough, I'm still trying to cope with the lesions on my face. It has made me really depressed, as I look at my modeling pictures in the past, then as I look in the mirror & not even recognizing my own face. All I wanna do is cry everyday. Never have I had this kind of depression. The Good Lord is my only hope, & my kids are my life, so day by day I'm strong for them. God Bless to all of you & stay strong.
