When a Hug Hurts

First I also have statue disease, when I was a child back in the day.

It took years to be diagnosed

My rash was treated (by Ganny) with corn starch. You didn't see a doctor unless you were with a fever. I had Lupus, it took years for it to be diagnosed.

Dealing with pain

I just am in too much pain to clean or even bathe. Is it just me or when someone even hugs you it hurts?

Interested in sharing your own diagnosis story, treatment experience, or another aspect of living with lupus?
