  1. Strange, strange, strange

    This whole mess, Lupus or whatever it is, just has to be the most confusing, confounding and downright troubling syndrom there is! First I'm diagnosed with it, now when the Plaquenil starts to work I'm told I don't have it. Oh, and let's not forget the diagnosis of Shrinking Lung Syndrom where the doctor flipped out when my rheum suddenly decided I didn't have Lupus. It was as if I conjured up this huge lie that encompassed the oxygen intake tests and everything. Oh come on!

    So, ...

    Now this is interesting
    3 times a week, I need to run and gradually increase the times i Run and decrease the times I walk.
    Not a bad plan!
    been doin it for two weeks, walk 2 mins, run 1 minute, week 1, then walk a minute run a minute, week 2.

    And so the the rest of my life begins
  5. My Mom Has Lupus.

    My mom is on this site, so she will probably read this. But im not going to let that stop me, cause i really need to find someone who can help me like she has herself. She isnt better by any means, but she is less down. I need that. I don't know what to say entirely but i guess I'll just wing it. since i can remember my mom has been sick.
