My spouse is diagnosed LUPUS. I am afraid of this. Can she be rcovered soon? Please reply me if you are experienced on it.

Lupus has no cure but treatment can calm down the effects of the disease so that the sufferer is able to live his/her life, albeit with some limitations, for example resting more and pacing herself, following a certain diet, attempting exercise. Getting the treatment right is key, lupus affects people in different ways so treatment differs from person to person.

Go to lupusuk.org.uk for more information, they are very helpful.

@Chaudhary, May God bless you for caring. Through experience and what I have learnt over the years. Lupus cannot be cured but can be controlled with the use of prescribed medication, it needs a lot of life adjustments which can easy to do if you get enough information about the disease. I have Lupus for more than 12 years but was diagnosed in 2003. I am coping with it and with the support if my family have managed to face reality and adjust accordingly. Most of the changes involve the day to day activities and responsibilities, such as work, diet, exercise, socializing etc. I hope you will gather information and know exactly what LUPUS IS!!! I call it the "DEMON WITHIN" because people will not understand it if you tell them you are sick. Take care and let your spouse know that they are not alone in this!

ive had it 23 years, it cant be cured, they can try and control it with medication, you have to alter your life to cope with the illness most of all you need support around you. a good case would be my ex who constantly moaned " whats wrong with you, you should be feeling better by now" thats why hes an ex lol

Me too, cause my ex was the same and I asked him to leave. He got married and is in a more serious situation than mine (not that I am happy about it) but just that if he had really wanted to support me he could after all these years together. Lets keep on keeping on and not lose Hope. Take care and stay positive.

not everyone with lupus is the same, the doctors told me i would be in a wheelchair, 23 years later still no wheelchair. just support your spouse, you will get to learn when there tired and when they need rest. good luck
