I was just recently diagnosed with lupus. Oh the irony. Especially since the day before I received this diagnosis, I posted the "Spoon Theory" and the my first words were...."I don't have lupus."
When I first received the news, I was almost relieved. There was FINALLY a reason as to why all these random things were happening to me at such a young 20-something age. Fast forward to a few hours later, after I had spent some time "Google-ing" my diagnosis, I was no longer happy. I was now overwhelmed, upset, and scared. Lupus patients have SO many problems as time goes on. Is this going to be me? Am I going to look like that?
Maybe I can wake up tomorrow and this will all be just a bad dream.
