I was made a mockery of because someone in another forum told me that I am making myself sick by thinking that I have Lupus. How do I make my joints hurt? How do I make myself Nauseous or Vomit or make my hands swell? How do I make my eyesight change and become more blurry and double vision? How do I make my eyes dilated all the time? How do I give myself headaches? I can't make myself sick, that's bs. If I have Lupus and I have the Lupus symptoms then I probably have Lupus. I'm not making myself have Lupus. Grrrrr, I am soooo mad right now. How do they know anything about me? Are they a darn doctor. Oh and by the way my Specialist is leaning towards me probably having Lupus after my most recent appointment. He said he wanted to give me meds to treat it but wanted to test me for some things to make sure. He also said that since I have Antiphospholipid Antibody Syndrome it's likely I do have Lupus because those two things usually come together. What do you think? I don't think I'm crazy. I think I'm sick and need treatment and apparently my doctor agrees! I don't need someone trying to make me look crazy.

Thank you for the nice Welcome. I need some kind of support system if I do end up getting that diagnosis.

Sounds like you have a Dr who is listening and who will treat your symptoms. In the end, that's about all we can ask for. Hope you feel better soon.
