    OMG! I just read that you work at a zoo! That is so cool and sounds like heaps of fun! I barely ever get to go to the zoo!

    I also saw your cheer photos you look so cute and as though you are having heaps of fun! I must learn how to use the album feature, but i barely have any photos of myself anyway!

    I have been so lucky not to get the puffy cheeks. Apparently my body has reacted really well to the prednisone so that is a plus! Im sure your little puffy cheeks look cute and they will eventually go away as the prednisone gets cut down.

    Thanks for the dietary advice, it has been one area i have not yet had a chance to discuss with my doctors but i have an appointment in a week so i can do that then. I will never give up chocolate!

    I must say i do love living in Australia! As soon as i leave school i will definatly travel. I would love to see france, italy and ireland! But thats still a while away and i never seem to stick to my plans.

    So what are you hobbies, future aspirations ect? I dont know about you but it seems that lupus has been on my mind like 24/7. I think that it is about time i start taking my mind off it, it seems to be getting the better of me.

    Well im off to raid the kitchen once again!

    i wish i was that young, my daughter is 17 she graduates in june. is it harder being younger knowing you will be sick the rest of your life. i glad i didn't find out until i was 37 i have a hard time getting up just waiting to see what kind of day its going to be. but if your like me i went good couple of years at at time feeling great. it just took the right doc. at right time to figure out what was causing everything.

    Well life could be alot better if weren't for being sick. but all in all not too bad. sat went to rest. on the water and sat outside and ate and looked at the boats it was very relaxing and skin was ok put on sunblock. the sun doesn't bother my skin like most lupus patients. are you in college or high school pict. make you look young?

    A couple years ago, about 20, I had an episode that my left eye, midway down, went completely black and I couldn't see anything. My rheumatologist says that might have been a clot. This year I finally went in to see one because the hives came back again. He diagnosed me, finally, with lupus and the lupus antibody. The antibody puts me at extremely high risk for strokes, heart attacks, and miscarriages. I just started dating a wonderful man in January and since then, I've had my gallbladder out, my wisdom teeth out, and those two diagnoses. My health has really gone down hill. I'm so exhausted all the time and I hurt a lot. Let alone those stupid hives! I have major random breakouts that sometimes swell my airway. It's really scary. The doc just recently put me on plaquenil, two weeks ago. I'm waiting to see results from that.
    Anyway, what's your story?

    I started having symptoms in 7th grade and had no idea what it was. My parents wrote it off as I was just faking it or getting into something I shouldn't have been in. I started with hives all over, from covering my feet and hands to swelling my eyes shut. They hurt so bad. Then the symptoms went away. They came back a few years later and it was very frustrating cuz I was like 16 or 17 and of course so selfconscious at that age. Then the doc found my positive ANA at 640 and advised me to go to a rheumatologist but I refused to because I didn't have insurance. I moved out of my parents house the day I turned 18, I had already graduated by then. The symptoms, again, went away.

I'm Ashley! I'm 21 years old. I am currently a senior at the University of Pittsburgh striving for a degree in Psychology with a minor in Theater. I'm hoping to become a Child Life Specialist post graduation. I was diagnosed with SLE on January 12th, 2009. I'm living 5 years strong with it. I may have Lupus, but it certainly doesn't have me!
I live in Pittsburgh, PA!
I love just being happy. I love to hang out with my friends and I absolutely love musical theater.
I work for Visitor Services at the Pittsburgh Zoo and PPG Aquarium.


I'm Not Crazy, I'm Just A Little Lupie!
