Yes I wasted 1000s of dollars on those who made me feel WORSE!
I tried to be a good lupie today and sat with my back to the sun at my brothers baseball game with an umbrella and still came home feeling drained, after having a good day. Could the heat make me feel like crap too?
Side note, my grandma took me to lunch today and gave me a beautiful opal ring as my grad present. I am sad however to find out that they can be ruined very easily so Im only going to wear it occasionally. I wish I could wear it everyday!

Lol yes I figured it out! On my own! I am still in shock! Okay now stay with the topic, quacks that take all our money and make us feel worse(grin). Think of all the shoes I could have bought.
Opal is my birthstone! They are beautiful. I'm so happy for you!
Success is not final, failure is not fatal: it is the courage to continue that counts.
I too get very drained, headache, and have to sleep. Summers are rough when it is in the 90s ad it has been here.
My sincere apologies for offending you inparticular and other members. I seemed to have gotten off on the wrong foot. Thank you all for your comments, I will take all of it seriously. As I stated, I'm very scared of the side effects of medication and purely looking for all "outs" rather than take them. As a result of reading the forum, and talking to my Mum (who also has Lupus) I feel as though I don't have any other choice and that is what I was asking opinions with. I have them now and can go to my next docotors appointment more open minded. cheers Noelene
