A new study conducted by researchers at Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia takes a closer look at depression and anxiety in children with lupus.
"At first, it sounded easiest to just give up, to give in to the fact that my whole life was going to change and there was nothing I could do about it. But I quickly acknowledged that I am not that person, I am stronger than that and I believe in myself."
"I went home and suffered in silence for years until one of the neurologists approved allergy shots that nearly killed me. The shots also brought out the full lupus rash, which was how I was finally diagnosed. No one should have to go through what I went through."
