    Default What a difference a day makes



    Let me introduce myself;

    I'm fifty years old, single parent and celebrating twenty - three years on the Lupus rollercoaster.
    I have been hospitalized with both discoid and sle.
    For the last couple of months I have experienced a great deal of joint pain , shortness of breath and fatique. My shoulder hurts contantly. I have been on many medications at different periods.
    I worked until I could hardly stand it. In my opinion stress can play a big part in managing Lupus. For me the less stress the better.
    It admit it has not always been like this for me. I would do things i did not enjoy, letting other people's problems become my own. Sometimes I get hard headed and (on a good day) and start a project and go into it full force until I run out of energy. I would get angry with myself. But I have learned that each day brings something new. I adjust to how I feel TODAY!!! Going easy on yourself makes living with Lupus a lot better.
    Believe in possibilities.....

    Popcorn;
    You are so right about not letting stress alter your health. Once you can reduce your stressors, you can then concentrate on improving your health and living with this disease.
