What do you want others to know about lupus?

I was going to a clinic to find out why I went from 145lbs to 110lbs. They took blood every week for a yeaeeeeeee and could not come uo with an answer. I changed primary doctorr. H asked me if I had any problems, I told him that my hands changed colors when they get cold. He had blood tests run. When I went back the next week he told me I had lupus.

Why is lupus a cruel mystery to you?

I had one doctor to tell me that I have lupus. Another, that treats me for sjogren's syndrome, said I did not have lupus. I ended up with a lupus infection in my eyes.
