  1. Hi Gretchyn,

    I just wanted thank you for your kind words to me in the "Meltdown" thread.

    Yesterday was a hard day, as it was my Dad's birthday, the first one to pass since he died.

    The "firsts" are so hard. First father's day without him, first birthday, and soon it will be the first Thanksgiving and Christmas without him.

    Anyway, thanks for talking,

  2. Pics of my fam on facebook since i can not for the life of me get them to download on here.

    Hi and welcome to WHL! We are really glad to have you with us.

    This page that we are on is your own visitors page. Most people won't come here unless it is to check on you or say hello. We really want to know about you do please go into the forums, find the "new members" section and introduce yourself there. There are many sections in the forum from symptoms or meds to "Laurie's lounge (the lounge is where we talk about anything that doesn't fit in the other sections). Whenever you want to talk about something just start a new thread in whatever section it fits in and you should start getting responses.

    Once again, I am glad that you are here. Let me know if I can help in any way

I am a now stay at home mom of 2 beautiful kids Deja who is 8 and Alexis who is 6. I have a wonderful husband who tries very hard to take care of me. I also have 2 wonderful dogs who also take very good care of me when Dad is not home and I am in a lot of pain, they know exactly when its coming and tend to stay right beside me and cuddle. There names are Chance and Trouble both pit bulls who are so very loving. I was recently diagnosed with Lupus 3 months ago. I don't get out very much and live in a very small town in Kansas. Not sure what else to write about myself but am hoping to get to meet and know others who are going through the same thing.

What a great over night stay in the hospital!

by blackeight on 08-24-2012 at 07:52 AM
Had a great over night stay in the hospital. I think my inflammation had hit all new high and got admitted. Except my wonderful Dr. only told them I was there for back pain and didn't tell them anything else. I do have a new diagnosis though RA along with my lupus. Yeah, one doc wanted a 2 day stay and test, another doc wanted another test and another doc, said no test get to go home. I love it when information is shared. And why on earth do they pump you full of pain meds then come and push on

A Better Day!

by blackeight on 08-19-2012 at 09:18 AM
Well yesterday and today I feel a little better. Not so emotional and not as much pain as I have been in lately. But am trying to remember that I still need to take things in stride and not get everything done just cause I feel better today in fear of how long it will be before I feel this good again. I have a bad tendency on the days that I feel better to just get up and try to accomplish the list of a 1,000 things that I have not been able to do cause of my Lupus. But am scared thats just going

Ok well I hope this is the one place someone can be honest! I am scared to death!

I am not sure what to expect from this but from what my doc tells me this should be getting better. But honestly the first 2- 3 weeks of methotrexate and anti-inflamatories and pain meds and it felt as though was getting better but now seems not so much. Its hard to type my hands get so stiff and hurt. There is always something hurting. Does this ever get better and less meds? My mouth tastes like a dry pharmacy, YUK! LOL! I am trying very hard to be funny. When I am really sad and scared. Just

What a month this has been!

by blackeight on 08-11-2012 at 02:30 AM
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
