... disease to say the least. I got diagnosed at 17 yrs old so I have been through a lot. I'm in a flare up right now and have to postpone my wedding;-( my fiancé is very supportive <3 but due to the side effects of the meds and the unpredictability of this disease I've decided that this was the best thing to do... I want to be my normal size in my wedding dress not the size the prednisone has made me. I have faith that with the chemo and positive attitude I will make it through yet another flare up and have my dream wedding. I have learned so much about this disease over the years and my mother is living with Lupus as well. I would be glad to answer any questions or be a crying shoulder for anyone. Anyway thanks for listening ;-)
