  1. Lupus and senioritis

    Feeling my age tonite, I know that they were just kidding, but being sensitive I wonder. Having lived with my daughter and her family off and on for the last 18 years, I feel like I'm part of the family but not. That's the only way I can think to express how I feel. My daughter forgot the tell me about a birthday dinner on Sunday. We realized this tonite when one of the kids said something. Now I don't know if I'm wanted or not.

    I can't live on my own and I now have a limited ...

    Hello friends! Looking for someone who knows if VAGIFEM is safe to take for people with Lupus? I have had a terrible time getting rid of UTIs this year. Since Jan.9,2015, I have had 5 UTIs.

I can not physically care for her. I have irrated my shoulder, pulled a muscle in my back that can not heal while I continue to lift her when she slips, catch her when she starts to fall.

  5. As the world turns, do I?

    I'm feeling out of sorts at the moment and can't figure it out. My health is pretty stable but I think I'm unhappy, tired of coping. Coping with everything, tired of dealing with my Mother's idiosyncrasies, tired of dealing with my Father's spurts of temper because he believes I'm ignorant. I know it's just a mood and I'll get over it.

    It's just this trapped feeling, I'm working around it, getting rid of it. But still, every now and then it gets to me...... Like today. I just ...
