Hi everyone, i am 17 years old was recently diagnosed with systemic lupus. I have wanted to become neonatal a nurse my whole life and was so excited when i got accepted into nursing school
, however now i am worried i wont physically be able to do the job and get through the schooling. So far the only symptoms i have had are some skin rashes and joint pain, however i know that being under stress and not taking care of yourself can cause flare-ups. I was just wondering if anyone has insight on nurses with lupus and opinions on if i should continue to purse a degree in this field? Also, if not are there any other careers in the health care field that may be more suitable?
Thank you for consideration
