Exclamation Lupus Anticoagulant Disease

I was diagnosed last Jan 09 with Lupus Anticoagulant Disease which is a blood clotting disorder. The blood thinkens and causes clots. Last year I had a DVT(deep vein thrombosis) and a PE(pulmoniary emboli which is blood clot in the lung). The gave me Lovenox shots in tummy and coumindin meds until my blood level was theraputeic. Went home life was fine went to doctors and kept up with my levels. Oct 09 I lost my job and I lost insurance and means to go to doctors and have my refills for my necessary meds. End of Jan 2010 I landed back in hospital with 2 DVT's and blood clot in lungs which made me worse. It took longer to regain the level of blood thinners in my system and to be able to go home.,,I am writing this today because I am searching for others like me and I just got home from hospital. This is a life treating disorder. Never get off meds and always keep in check with doctors and blood levels. Hope to hear from you and others. God Bless!
