Descrimination due to Lupus?
I am wondering if anyone of the posters in here have ever been descriminated against in their life, because of Lupus and rashes. I know I sure have. Forget about dating when I was a teenager, because that was not happening. I had that nasty blistery rash all over the palms of my hands and the soles of my feet and on my fingers. It was terrible. I posted pictures on another post of what they appeared like at their worst. I could not find any pictures on the net to describe what the rash looked like, but Oluwa, bless her heart, directed me to a site where these pictures were and boy it was just like what I have along with Lupus and Sjogrens. I was literally forced out of HS by the principal thanks to the rash on my hands and feet. At the time I also had Lupus symptoms, but I did not know a thing about Lupus. I tried to get my parents to go to the school and try to get me back in, but that was a no go. My parents were abusive, but we won't go there. I have lost jobs due to my hands and due to the Lupus. I can not get disability at all. I have tried several times. My doctor told me that you have to be half dead. I know that is a crock. Well thanks for letting me vent some.
Lupus for many years. Like most of my life. Sjogrens that started at 35 and Scoliosis, Spinal Stenosis, Degenerative Disc Disease, Osteo-Arthritis of the spine, Ankylosing Spondilitis, Periferal Neuropathy, mild CP and now just recently diagnosed with PA. I had a disc replaced in December of 2007.
Plaquenil, Sulindac, Imuran, Celiac diet, Tramadol and B12 shot once a month.
