Ever since I was diagnosed with Lupus 2 years ago, I have had people who are newly diagnosed (or suspecting that their symptoms are Lupus without confirmation yet) ask me how to deal with having the disease. Instead of rewriting it all here, I am directing you to today's post on my blog titled, "So You Have Lupus. What Are You Going To Do About It?" Click HERE if you are interested in reading it. Warning...I tend to be blunt when I communicate. =)
I'm Ali and I'm new to We Have Lupus. I wanted to say hello to everyone. I've been dealing with the lupus pretty much on my own, and I would like to become more involved with others who know what it's like to deal with this ... have a few laughs ... lend support ... seek support ...
Warmest wishes to you all!
Can Lupus be a blessing? I think sometimes it can. Click HERE to see how.
So I'm in a funk, with a headache and just been pissy for 2 days now. I have no ideaa why and my joint pain is much better but I'm just ready to fight with anyone who get near me??!! Ridiculous! I was thinking that it could possibly be hormonal but since I use a Nuvaring continuously and don't have a monthly cycle I'm not sure how the hormonal/PMS symptoms are working now. Argh this sucks and all I want to do is take a nap! On a lighter note; I hope that everyone has a stress and pain free day.
I just back from the docs office and I hope that our newest plan of action will be a success!
I asked him about some burning sensation that I was having in my foot and he said along with the "auto immune connective tissue" disorder that it sounds like a touch of fibro like symptoms going on....he changed his diagnosis from Lupus to "unspecified autoimmune connective tissue" since my last visit. Don't know what that is about (other than insurability) but whatever.
