Hi, my name is Gill. I have had lupus sle for about 7 years, I also have fibromyalgia. I don't know anybody else who has lupus so thought it would be good to talk to others who have lupus. Most of the time I cope well with having lupus but find the fatigue and pain quite difficult. I have two daughters, a cat, 2 guinea pigs and a tortoise. I work as a learning support assistant with special needs children.
