Hi, I'm a Lupie mum - my darling daughter was diagnosed 6 months ago and is doing pretty well, but it's scary. At the moment I do most of the reading and research - sort of trying to protect her from it I guess, and she just wants to try to get on with life as normal as possible, revise for exams, etc., not spend hours trawling the internet. I'd really love to read some inspiring stories of people who've recovered or had long periods of remission, so I can understand the positive possibilities and not get totally bogged down by fears for the future. Obviously any thoughts on what contributed to the recovery would be gratefully received. I realise that people who have recovered and come off drugs, or aren't in the midst of Lupus at the moment, may not be active users of the forum, so I mustn't get depressed if there aren't many replies! Any positive stories would be much appreciated!!!
