Hello and welcome to the boards :)

I'm sorry to hear about your diagnosis. It is very important to talk to people who understand what it is like to live with this disease as it is so difficult for others to understand.

You say you have been recently diagnosed, have you been ill for long?

There are a few other young members here. They maybe don't post as often but I'm sure they'll be along soon to say hi!

bye for now,
Katharine

Hi there and welcome to the Forum

Im sorry to hear about your diagnosis. It must be very difficult at your age. I hope you have been started on medications?

I see you have also posted in the Under 20's Forum. We have a number of members here around your own age. They dont post too regularly so hopefully someone nearer to your age will be online soon and respond to your post. Keep checking in. Im quite ancient by your standards :hehe: Im 50 years old and have been diagnosed now about three years.

It can be a lonely business dealing with Lupus especially during a flare :hugbetter: Its great to know you have a place like this to come to where people understand whats going on for you. You will get great support here and accurate, up to date information on Lupus and treatments. There is a lot of out-dated information on the web so be careful what you are reading.

How does your Lupus affect you by the way? Everyone is a bit different and some people are lucky enough to get the right mix of medication early on and have minimal problems. Others might have more complicated forms of the disease.

If you have any specific questions about symptoms or treatments, please dont hesitate to ask:) In the meantime, welcome again and I look forward to getting to know you better.

Take good care

Lovely to meet you and hope to catch up soon

Hello Orange, Good to meet you. Is it okay to call you Orange or is there a name you prefer?
(I am sure orange pigs do rock, and it sounds like something my Daughter Immi would say, she is 17, with Lupus) I have Lupus too, long time diagnosed. Immi only had her diagnosis a little while ago but had been ill for ages so it was expected.

I am often in Chat about 11 pm Uk Time.

Hi and welcome to the lupus board.:)

You have found a great place with understanding members.
I am older too. Even older people who don't have lupus really doesn't understand what we go threw.

Are you going threw a flare right now?:hug: What meds did your doctor put you on for lupus?

Take care and I hope to chat with you sometime.
