Mom to toddler and preschooler
I was diagnosed with lupus kidney disease in 10/03. My children are now 14 months and 5 1/2 years. I guess I am very blessed because the meds are working for me. Its tough for me to give you advice about having lupus and being a mom to a toddler, but I can tell you that I know how you feel. One of the hardest things I have had to face with this disease is the times when I cannot take care of my children. One thing that has helped me is to see how much my children love me no matter what. They loved me when I swelled from pred. They loved me when my hair fell out from the chemo. It is my desire to see them grow to outstanding adults that keeps me fighting this SOB disease.
