    Default Another New Member

    Well I am another new member. I have been diagnosed with lupus for a little over a year now, but have had the symptoms for probably 6 or 7 years. I am still learning what all of this entails. Any advice on how to handle those rotten flares would be fabulous....I am doing yoga and watching what I eat and that seems to help some, I feel like a pill popper with all of my medications. Does anyone else have any suggestions on what to do?

    Hi Ruth :lol:
    Welcome to our family. I would say that what you are doing is pretty much the right thing to do. Make sure that you avoid sun exposure, do not over-exert yourself, and take recuperative rest periods.
    I think that we all can identify with being "pill-poppers", but for most of us it is a necessary evil if we want to manage this disease and avoid flares. You are not alone :lol:

    Again...Welcome
