There are more people with Lupus out there than I thought.

I don’t know anyone around me that has Lupus, besides myself. I felt so alone, until I searched the tag “Lupus” and I found all of these blogs. I hate that you all are going through the same thing I am, but it’s nice not to feel alone, and see that there are people who truly understand what I’m/we’re going through…

I got diagnosed when I was about 15 years old, I’m 20 now. I am actually currently in a flare up. It sucks not being able to get out of bed in the morning. It takes me about an hour to make myself go through the pain of getting out of bed JUST to go to the bathroom, get a drink, eat, anything. 
I can’t keep a job because once I start all the activity trying to keep up with everyone else… but I have a flare up and I have to miss too much work. So I get fired. I don’t know what to do.
