It's really a random disease, like many others. For some, it can be controlled or even go into a kind of remission. For others, it can run rampant and cause serious damage to organs, et.al. It just really depends on what kind you have and how your body reacts to Lupus and to the various treatments.
Try to stay in the present day and not waste your energy worrying about
it. You will know soon enough and then you will take the appropriate action.
