What do you want others to know about lupus?

Lupus is a serious and life changing disease.the symptoms can be very misleading,and you could be suffering from it a long time before you are diagnosed.

Why is lupus a cruel mystery to you?

i started experiencing strange signs a bit before and while pregnant with my son. Fatigue,joint pain,but the hair loss was what really tipped me off that something was wrong. Sometimes handfuls of hair would come out while washing it.when i went to the doctor i was diagnosed with Alopecia areata. My hair grew back but after i had my son it began again,and the joint pain got worse.My legs felt so sore it felt like someone had been punching them.I was always so tired.Then one day i found a good sized lesion on my scalp it was red and sore.I also found a few smaller ones.I was freaked out, and immediatley went to my doctor and shortly thereafter was diagnosed. I worry alot about if it will get worse in the future, but thankful for now that its not that bad.
