thanks for the supporting words of comfort... my brother has MS, so both disorders definitely put us in the genetic garbage category. Life expectancy used to be ten years after diagnosis, but (they say) lupus is manageable and life expectancy can be normal (they say) as long as treatment is used. What do you know of lupus?

I'm sure I do not know as much as you have learned. I know that it is an often insidious autoimmune disease with no know cure at this time. It's symptoms can range from being cosmetic to morbid. It seems to "prefer" females and can be harder on the young ones. Recent attention to autoimmune diseases seems to have directed the medical community to finding some more effective treatments. You are, I trust, seeking the most up to date providers and demanding their full attention.
