What a month this has been!

I was recently diagnosed with Lupus about 6 months ago while my husband was deployed for a year. That was fun to say the least. I have read a lot about lupus but have found no matter how much I read about it, doesn't replace actually talking to people who are living with it. The past couple of months have been really painful, finally went to the doc 2 weeks ago and found out my ANA was 12 and was 3 times worse than it was 6 months ago. Not sure what all that means or how high or low its supposed to be. But am on methotrexate, anti-inflamatories, pain meds, anti-depressants, and sleeping meds. Sleep has not been my friend through this wonderful journey. Am feeling a bit better now and can finally dress and undress myself and get in bed by myself. Bless my wonderful husband who takes such good care of me and is finally home. Look forward to reading your posts and suggestions on how to manage and live with Lupus.
