I showed symptoms for 6 years at least before a correct diagnosis was made. Depression, RA, and the lovely "all in your head" diagnoses were made! It was rough and not one doctor took into consideration that my mother has RA and father has discoid lupus!! 2 genetic links there! LOL, I have had it with doctors, the only one I trust at all is my Rheumatologist. But good luck! And know this, there is NO ONE TEST for Lupus! My ANA goes from being high to nothing within a month!!! Lovely disease this Lupus!
No Heaven will heaven ever be, if my cats aren't there to welcome me.
