I am 60 years old. I have always looked young and beautiful for my age. I attracted 29 and up men, and it was a boost to be beautiful and told so. I believe that I have had lupus. Long time, due to the discussion sores I had on my body and scalp for years. But about 4 years, my whole face, ears, nose, neck etc just had hell a sores and I had not been diagnosed yet. It did not last long, never knew what that was and life went on. For the most part my health up to now has been excellent dispite thinking I have had dormant lupus. A year and a half ago, think believe I had a stroke. All of a sudden my speech was slurred and I couldn't talk and was afraid to drive to the hospital but didn't think I was bad enough to call an ambulance. 6 days later, it subsided and I was OK. But the effects lasted 6 days, slurring... I never saw a Dr for that specifically, but have done the rounds in Dr offices and E.R. and nobody could figure out what was wrong. Someone recommended a Dr who recognized the symptoms and tested me. I had lupus. What is totally freaking me out right now is that, as I started to say, I was beautiful, and all of a sudden I am covered again with crusty sores everywhere including my face. About 25 of them, near my lip, chin, eyebrow, nose... Hell, everywhere. I look jacked up. I try and out makeup over it but it makes the cutest look just as awful. I live in Tulsa where people do a lot if meth, and people look at me like I am a meth head. I feel so humiliated I just want to hide, and if this is my quality of life honesty I pray to God I die in my sleep soon. I am full of fear because of the fast nature.. On July 6 I looked radiant. It is Nov 18 and I look like I am dying. It is not vanity you hear, Hut a mixture of embarrassment, shame and fear
