Hi, I am new to the site. I am a 33year old female, residing in Kimberley South Africa. I have SLE for 1 year now and my life was nothing less than a battle. I would really like to stay in contact with other lupus sufferers, just for advice and guidance (i think that i know more about my lupus than what my GP knows!) It is not easy to live with lupus, so many changes and challenges. worst is in a country like South Africa - to avoid the sun!!
