LUPUS is a "ghost" ailment. I feel terrible inside. I wish I could wish it away. The symptoms are so uncomfortable. Hands ache or throb constantly, loss of balance, alopecia, weight loss, hot flashes/sweats and energy loss. I am a 61 yy, African American, diagnosed in March 2017. My Doctors have been as supportive as possible. I'm happy my children are adults, It wouldn't be fair to them. I'm in Georgia. I wish I could travel and participate like I used to. Not angry just frustrated.
