My daughter was diagnosed last October and we are just getting the drug combo right now. She is only 17 and taken it upon herself to stop taking her meds including her steroids which she has been on since October last year. I asked her why, she says she forgets but I don't think this is the case at all. She did say I feel fine I am not in pain so it's fine!!! I think she is in denial about this whole situation. So worried about her I really don't know what to do. She has lupus and connective tissue disorder. She has question mark currently over protein in her urine too.
