Dear Mandy,

I am a student also, although my lupus is such that I can only take one class at a time and I sometimes have to choose classes that are satellite courses that I take at home. In my opinion, I think it is best to let your professor know ahead of time, since lupus is so unpredictable. You can wake up one day and feel fine and then wake up the next day and can't get out of bed. I have found that when you are upfront things go better. If you are concerned about appearing weak, just let your professor know that you are a dependable person, that is not lazy and looking for a way out, but that you have to face the truth of how lupus may affect you. Maybe you can let him know that you are willing to make up work or do what you need to do to keep up. Hopefully he will be reasonable. Maybe ask your Lupus Dr. if he/she would be willing to help if a note is needed.

Good luck,
