It's so good that you found us here. And it's ok to vent, and be mad. You will find that we all have so much in common, especially about how much we care about each other, even though we haven't met. And, to whatever degree, even though lupus is a disease that attacks each of us differently, on different days, no matter how old or young we are, we have a pretty good idea of how bad the bad days are. I think there are some teenager support groups around here somewhere, and the Lupus Foundation is a good resource. I went to their group meetings when I was first diagnosed, and found the friendship and support such a blessing. I think that's what you will find in us here. Our forum moderators do a tough job, too, because there are times when we ALL say things we regret, or wish we could take back, or changed the tone, and being cautionary is their job, so that no one's feelings get hurt even unintentionally. I think of it as a big dose of mothering. And one mom toned reminder, as my dr. said to me, the goal of treatment today, and taking our meds, is for the best wellness we can have tomorrow, Lupus research and treatments get better every day,
