Survey Reveals Lupus' Ability To Wreck Careers
Lupus has a profoundly negative effect on the working lives of sufferers', found a survey of over 2,000 lupus patients presented at the Annual Meeting of the European League Against Rheumatism (EULAR) in London, May 25-28. "We've shown just how debilitating lupus can be in terms of the number of patients having to stop work, change their jobs or apply for sick leave...

Lupus has wrecked my career even before I started working. I can't even get proper education because I am unfit for school these days...
But Jesus looked at them and said, “With men it is impossible, but not with God; for with God all things are possible.”
I laughed and kinda shook my head at this "survey" too Steve.
Lupus wrecks careers? Well, no s**t! That's quite a revelation-NOT!

All I can think of is, " Does this mean that I might not be able to work with blinding pain, heavily mediated, falling asleep at the wheel and stuff like ORGAN FAILURE?" Now how am I supposed to get through this day with this study raining on my parade? Ahahahahaha...Is this sarcasm? I was going to work on this while home sick from work!
I suppose they felt the need for this waste of time survey. They could have better spent their time and money on other research. But as one of the few who can still work at my age; I feel their time should have been better spent. I am so beaten down by lupus that I've lost my sarcastic edge- used to be really good at it
Oh Nonna I know that you will rebound and it will come back. Today I have no strength to be sarcastic either, so we will have to rely on someone else. Okay who is able to be humorous and sarcastic today as Nonna and I are taking a rest? We are pooped out.
Love you Nonna. Fingers are crossed that things get better soon
