Hi. I'm Niecy. I'm 28 years old and I have Lupus. I was diagnosed with Lupus when I was 20, but I started having symptoms when I was about 15. The doctors told me that it was just "Growing Pains" and that it would eventually go away. I was very athletic when I was younger I was even a Cheerlearder so I thought that maybe I had asthma or something because I had pain in my chest whenever I was breathing hard. Well, I was finally diagnosed with the disease when I was 20, and lately it has gotten a lot worse. I was so happy when I found this website. It is a good feeling to know that you are not alone in this battle.

I just can't stay in that building that is reeking mildew...
