OK first a little history. This is about my mom who can be a little nutty. She has always been sickley and has done everything from broken her neck, back, to contracting Hep A,B, and C at some point in her life. She has arthitis and her hair falls out in mass amounts under stress, shes lost about 50 pounds over the last few years for no apparent reason, and each summer when she is out and about in her yard she gets these scabs all over her scalp. They are so bad some of them lead onto her face. Since I have been diagnosed with Lupus my mom keeps thinking that maybe thats whats wrong with her. I am not sure if I should encourage this thinking because I am not convinced that it is but then again I am not a doctor. If she was tested she would be self pay and that is what worries me we all know how expensive this round of tests are and there are ALOT of them. She had so many medical conditons right now its not even funny I couldnt imagine her being able to afford to pay for something like this and it being a waste. Should I tell her go ahead and get tested for her own peace of mind or discourage her from doing it. I am so confused.

Imagine that my very own mother who has lived in my home for the...
