Why is lupus a cruel mystery to you?

I have had walking pneumonia at the ages of 29,30,31 I has been in and out of the emergency room for what I was told was allergies from changing climates. I've lived in a lots of states and fallen sick in each state, When We lived in Texas, I was admitted into the hospital with fluids of the heart and lungs due to my lupus complications. Liver and Kidney Figure. Now I have a terrible cough that would keep me up at night, spots on my legs that would itch turn red and then turn black. I went to the dermatologist the throat and ear doctor, and even had to go see an eye doctor because I started to get blurred vision. I have to take some much meds for my S.L.E. even Chemotherapy. Some days I'm so weak,in pain or sick to my stomach, I stayed in bed all day.I'm Disable, not able to work due to the compilations from my lupus.
