    • You’re not alone...preliminary results of a Foundation and Yeshiva University survey of 300 New Yorkers with lupus indicate that appearance is a top concern and can be highly emotionally distressing, causing significant depression. You can do something about a number of appearance-related concerns. See tips from the experts
