hi everyone..this christmas was the best. but then all of a sudden i had a really sore throat and a really bad hacking sound cough. Well that seemed to have cleared away on its on with some nasty cough medicine. Well couple of days later..i had the sore throat again but that went away then i had the hacking cough again. i lost my appetite and seemed to be getting worse. well yesterday my grandma took me to the doctor and he said i was seriously ill with maybe the cold or an infection i'm not sure..i'm only 16 and i want my life back!! i just wanna know if i'm going to die with the infection..i'm really scared cus i havne't had the cold or infection before with the lupus and i don't know what to expect. i'm on medication for it but my doctor said if i don't get better soon i will have to go to the hospital for intravenual medication for the cold or infection. help????
