    ...................... [ Edited :The first two links aren't working any more so I have deleted them. CT]
    Also this site with info on people with ME may be relevant to those who have extreem fatigue http://ayme.org.uk/article.php?sid=16&id=216

    Good luck to anyone making a claim, I know it seems depressing to say all the things you can't do/ how bad lupus can be (particularly for those who like to stay positive about their health condition) but remember to tell them what it's like when you are at your worst, and when describing variations from day to day use the phrase "on my better days" rather than "on good days" or they assume you are fine on "good days".

    This is very useful ta I am off to Job Centre tomoz to see if I can get anywhere. I was unsuccessful the first time but now finding it very hard to get back to work as having chemo for kidney failure. Might have more luck this time!?

    Lupus can be just as serious as cancer! :mad:

    I've applied for it for my daughter and she's been refused clearly these people have no clue. She doesn't have the same quality of life as other 16yr olds as after school she has to sleep. She also has von wilibrands disease but even bleeding for unto 20days of the month means her life is the same as other 16year olds. I don't think so so I'll keep fighting for her x
