Hello my name is Carolyn Martin. My daughter Shannon got Lupus when she was 17. She lived another 13 years before dying at the age of 30. She has 2 children both boys that has no mother now. She was on accutane at the age of 14 for acne. I am pretty sure that is what gave her lupus. She got very depressed and didn't act like herself. The doctor took her off of it after a few months because her platelet count dropped very low. I think it probably destroyed her immune system at the same time. I miss her so much,she was my best friend. I wish I could do something for her like stopping that drug company from ever hurting anyone else.
