Staying strong!09/07/2010 02:09:06
Hello! My name is Elizabeth and I am 22 years old. I was diagnosed with Lupus Nephritis on July of this year. It all started on January 2010. When I would wake up in the morning I felt my hands really stiff. I could barely make a fist and they would hurt alot. That went on for about 4 months. On May I got the flu really bad and that's when everything went downfall. I had excrutiating joint pain! I could barely make it out of bed. It got really bad that I went on depression and didn't really want to eat. I lost about 50 pounds and lost alot of hair. I would cry everyday because I felt worthless! I felt even worse because I couldn't even play with my 2 year old son! Ever since I got diagnosed I became a different person! I am having faith that I will be okay not only for me and my family but most of all...MY SON!
