I've been diagnosed with complex autoimmune disease over a year ago, undifferentiated though. Been so poorly. I recently woke up covered in terrible itchy rash! It lasted four weeks- as an emergency I was seen by dermatology and rheumatology. They were shocked at state of skin. They did biopsy. The dermatologist phoned me yesterday- it's definitely lupus, and there's other aspects too! She says 'you're a challenge '
It's been/ still is an awful time. I was off work a year- now, after fighting for my job ( I'm a nurse!) I've returned, but only 2 days a week. I'm on so much medication!! I hate steroids!! Only got married less than a year ago- and I'm a different person, I feel. Anyway, I try to stay positive. Thanks
