That sucks. My grandmother died of lupus before I was even born. It's a pretty crappy disease.

Oh come on. It's never Lupis.

Don't think she's particularly talented, but she took a lot of crap for being Beiber's girlfriend.

So, I salute her bravery for being in an openly lesbian relationship and for facing such a terrible illness.

/In all seriousness, I don't know much about lupus, so I'll just say that I hope it turns out well for her

My mom has lupus, lived with it for 26 years since her diagnosis. And it's done some weird things to her... for a few years she was allergic to UV light.

Discoid or SLE? Discoid gives you a rash. SLE is the more severe one that affects your organs.  I have a friend with Discoid Lupus. You'd never know she has it.

Either way, supposedly 80-90% live a normal lifespan, so that's a good thing.

A majority of cases run a mild course that can managed with oral steroids.  Even still, though, impaired renal function gradually develops for a lot of these people even if the disease hasn't really caused any other significant complications.  It's a pretty shiatty disease.  Fortunately, it's rare.

Been there, done that.  As mentioned upthread, SLE is horrid.  The other one is much more livable.

Oh, fark me. I always considered her cute, despite the sharp knees/no rack/she's a boy detractors.

Hopefully, she won't go down the Annette Funicello route with MS as well. Then, I will blame Disney.

My friend Jody died from complications of SLE.  The other types (tumid lupus, or TLE; discoid lupus, or DLE) are manageable but not totally curable.

A disease with several subtypes with vague and variable symptoms is excellent cover for whatever psychiatric problem/drug addiction/eating disorder she actually has.

What do you mean by "it goes bipolar and back pain then fibromyalgia"? Are those diseases statistically over-represented in disability claims, or are you suggesting they are all bullshiat claims and/or diseases in the first place? Kind of like being a disability application reviewer is a bullshiat occupation--you just make sure to turn down 70% of the applications (or whatever your quota is) and you keep your job? Kind of like that? Structural changes in relevant anatomy for bipolar disorder and back pain can both be visualized using medical imaging. I'm not sure about fibromyalgia.

On topic, lupus can be a horrendous disease. I know someone very young with it who walks for hours on end during painful bouts because it's the only thing that distracts from the aching. Imagine what hell that is. His disability claim was probably also denied, because he isn't in pain 100% of the time, is he!

I know two fibromialgia "sufferers"....both are mother's of friends and both fit my description above (I know, anecdote blah blah blah). For better or worse, I believe it's a privileged "fake" ailment with no known cause and wishy washy symptoms.

Lupus is a real autoimmune disease that strikes indiscrimately and has defined variants and symptoms.

See the difference?
