Living with a Lupus patient requires patience and understanding of their symptoms. We have a tendency to think that they cannot be THAT fatigue, that they should get up and do more to combat the fatigue. The truth is, Lupus patients are truly and chronically fatigued. They are not pretending, nor are they trying to get out of doing things - they are fatigued. Most of all, they wish that they were not so fatigued!
Thanks for the tip Suzie!
Still a great tip.
And still still a great tip!
I haven't seen you for a while...miss you!
Still here, still checking!
Thanks for the tip .... I just thought I would let you know ... that after nearly 10 years, I would make your day and answer your post. See good things are worth waiting for. And yes, I really do wish I was not that fatigued.

Too many people forget this or never understand it in the first place
Success is not final, failure is not fatal: it is the courage to continue that counts.
Oh My Gosh...how funny. I posted that when WHL was new and we had almost zero members. Conrad kept encouraging me telling me that the site would take off and, oh how right he was.
I had completely forgotten about this post and, THANK YOU so much for replying. You are the best
Always wishing you
Peace and Blessings
Look For The Good and Praise It!
I quoted this on my facebook the other day for one of my "lupus facts" for lupus awareness month =)
