Hi everyone!

Just a quick intro. Im Alex and im a male teenager living in UK, who has just been diagnosed with lupus. In fact, I havent even got my results back from my skin biopsy (getting stitches out on Xmas day - lucky me :p)

I just want to say this site has some great info, greatly appreciated :)

Welcome Alex,
You are right the site is full of info and their are great people here also. I am sorry to here you have lupus but on the other hand you are not alone as you can see. I hope that you find comfort here and some good friends. There is a chat room and please feel free to join in anytime you want to talk.
I am sorry to hear that your not feeling very well. If you don't eat with the meds then yes the stomache does get upset especially with the steriods and the plaqs. Sometimes a dry cracker will help.

lalalola is right you will adjust to the blood work, it seems everytime I go to the doctor I am getting stuck. They have to use a baby needle with me or the vains collapse. They don't seem to hurt so bad either. Not sure if any of this helps you but thought I would share with you just in case.

Feel better soon.
