how did people come to terms with their diagnosis? I'm only 23 and I'm really struggling to get my head around all of this.
I have gone from being your average 23 year old loving spending time with friends and enjoying life to not wanting to leave my house unless absolutely necessary. The red discoid marks all over my body have caused my self esteem and confidence to plummet.
I feel like a fraud sometimes because although I'm in a lot of pain I don't 'look ill'.
Right now medication isn't helping, if anything I'm feeling worse for it.
I just need to know that it does get better.
