my daughter as got sle lupus and itp blood disorder - LUPUS UK
Sorry to hear about your daughter. This is a great site I can't help you with reguard to finding a group in your area but i'm sure someone else will be along soon and maybe they can help.
I agree with copdber, get her 2 join this site. Each & every 1 of us on her will know exactly how she's feeling & can relate 2 what she's going thru. She is certainly not alone. I myself was diagnosed at 16 & I believe there r others on her who were diagnosed even younger so we can all relate & I promise, we will all do our very best 2 help her come 2 terms with this. If u click on the 'Directory' section at the top of the page & send a message 2 PAUL HOWARD (listed under ADMINS) he will b able 2 tell u where u're nearest group is.
hi sher78 its is so so to good to here of so many nice people that have got the same illness cos my daughter seams to think that her life is going to end very soon and to here that you was diagnosed with this illness at the age of 16 has give me more hope and when i show my daughter all these i hope it will give her piece of mind and she can live a life with her illness
So sorry to hear about the pain your daughter is in. As everyone has said get her to join on her theres loads of people her age and younger she can talk to which will help her im 18 myself and joining here has really shed some light on things im so glad i found this site its really helped me alot to cope with the way iam. i would love to talk to her myself to help her out. I dont no any groups in the arera though but as sher78 has said PAUL HOWARD will be happy to find someone in your area that can help.

My daughter has SLE Lupus and had a temporary wave of this when only five, she then went on to have Lupus and Hughes Sydrome - Antiphospholipid Syndrome - this disorder you describe can happen with Hughes Syndrome and a small percentage of people with Lupus can have both diseases, myself and my daughter have this profile. I am sure people on this site, will come forward from your area and there will be people nearer her age which she will find helpful. Mary F x
