Sadly i have just been told i have lupus it was such a shock as it has been well over a year since my first symptoms started.After a lot of doc visits he finally agreed to some blood tests which of course started the whole episode of more appointments and more doc visits.When my rheumy told me i have lupus i said what is that! am i going to die,he said the desease effect everyone differently and you have it mild.that was more or less it he gave me a leaflet a prescription and see you in 3 months for more blood tests.of course i went straight home and looked it up on the internet.
it was such terrifying reading, later that night i cried and cried as it sunk in that i have got a serious desease and no one to talk to about it who could really understand.
so once again went back to my docs who has been great and explained everything clearly which has helped and informed me of this web site, but no matter what all the professionals tell me i know its going to take me personally sometime to deal with it myself.
anyone got any tips on how they dealt with being told?
