First Run In with Lupus

I had just come from the hospital today and the er docs say I may possibly have lupus. This being my first run in with it, I looked up as much info as I could on the net, but nothing really prepares u for when u may possibly have it. If I do end up with lupus, do any of u have suggestions for "good" foods that'll help keep it at bay and any other tips for dealing with this emotionally and physically?
