Hi I'm diamond, I'm 16 about to be 17 in January. I was diagnosed with lupus September 15, 2013. That day I experienced the worst pain of my life. I had no idea what was going on with me. It's like something was attacking every muscle and every bone in my body. It's took a days for the doctor to find out what was wrong but they said I was fine. I knew I wasn't because I was hurting that bad. My mom decided that she wasn't listening them and she took me to another hospital. Where it only took them one day to find out what was wrong with me. When they told my mom and me that I had Lupus I didn't know what it was at the time. I've had it for over three going on four years now. The worst was last year when I was in and out the hospital all year long. I was ready to give up and say I'm done with this , I thought it was unfair like I didn't deserve this. It took me a minute to get out of that state and when I did , it got a little better. But every now and then it comes back , I'll just say I'm stronger than that and push on! I'm Diamond Trena and That's my story!!!!
