Hi, I've recently been diagnosed with undifferentiated conective tissue disease (UCTD) but my rhumotologist said it all lupus (I'm on medication for SLE) but theres also other aspects of other diseases too. I struggle a lot with it and I just wondered if UCTD was recognised the same or even as an illness so I can get some sorts of help to manage university life. Also I wondered if the financial help is the same for a sufferer of UCTD as opposed to SLE.
I'm extremely worried about going to uni to do a mental health nursing course which is very full on and my UCTD not being recognised or not getting any support.
Thank you in advance.
