Finding Out More About Lupus

OK I have found out in this past month. My lupus has also effected my eyes. I now have Macular degeneration, did you guys know that lupus gives you that? And I'm only 51? You don't get that until you're in your 60s, my eye doctor said. Did you know also you can get the shakes? I went from writing really smooth, to writing with the shakes. I believe my doctor calls them tremors. 4 months ago I was perfectly fine. I was able to write well and color easily in my grown up coloring book. Then I woke up 1 day with the tremors (or the shakes).

Do you know how irritating and how bad my anxiety is now? Although we still need to keep pushing and hope nothing else comes out of it.
