hi oregongirl, I was 29 with two children, one was only 6 months old when i was diagnosed. It was the worst moment of my life, I had heard of Lupus, but was devastated because i knew the damage it could do. I have kidney, skin , joints and now experiencing Liver problems. Make sure you talk to people and tell them how you feel, don't bottle anything up, I did and ended up with depression and i could not leave my home with out having a panick attack. I found the Lupus association and i was back on track and with the help of boards like this one, I can look foward. If you ever need to express you fears or feeling
people like myself and jeri (who by the way has helped me out before) are always here to lend an ear ( or and eye, i should say).
all the best, and good luck, let me know how you get on.

Thank you very much for all this help. I really do appreciate it and find it comforting to know that I am not alone. I feel alone with this sometimes. My husband is having a hard time too. I knew from the look on his face when I told him I had it for sure. I dont think he really expected that to be the real diagnosis, even though we had suspected it already. He felt my elbow last night and couldnt believe how hot to the touch it was and how cold my hands were at the same time. The burning in my elbows is bad sometimes.
I will keep you posted. Thanks again.
