I was just diagnosed last month. I am still also trying to understand. But I have learned, in the last few years of not knowing, that focusing on feeling better will get you through it. I've tried not enough of everything but I am trying. Changing my eating habits, laundry detergent, cooking habits, have made progress. Small progress but some progress. 3 years of not knowing what I have, I have realized the long exposure to the sun, even summer time, is not good for me. Lupus is a perfectly good reason why its not. This comes from paying attention to your body when you feel good and bad. Good luck hunny!
