I am a 33 year old single mother of two that was just diagnosed with lupus. The only reason I found this out is because of my pregnancy with my daughter 1 1/2 years ago when I had pre-eclampsia and had her 6 weeks prematurely. I have always went to doctors complaining of being overly tired all the time, having wierd rashes, infections in the iris of my eye, and ulcers all over my mouth. They always treated them seperately and never put two and two together. Now I know why I was having all this "stuff" happening.
Since I have a name for it now, I want to know more and more. I need to talk to someone with lupus to give me ideas and suggestions on where to go and what to do. It's hard getting my family to understand what I am going through. They, as well as myself, do not know enough about it.
I have looked at my county health department and they do not know of any support group near Quincy, Il. except St. Louis which is about 2 1/2 hours away. Can someone lead me into the right direction?
