My mother (52) was recently diagnosed with Lupus. I am saddened and frightened. Her health and quality of life seem just horrible. She is constantly exhausted, sometimes cannot get the strength to get up. She is throwing up weekly (probably due to the meds side effects). She has lost a considerable amount of wait. Although she feels soooo tired, she at times cannot sleep. Her back and neck hurt always, at times it is unbearable. She appears fragile and often depressed. She can hardly even spend time with her grandkids, due to all these syptoms. Is this what other Lupus patients are experiencing? Is this just the way her life is going to be from here on?
