    Go to youtube.com, search for methrotrexate and lupus. There are 8 videos to watch. It was really great to learn how the meds are affecting her and see how much she improved by the end of the week. It was awesome! Check it out.

    Iseedeadmonkeys,

    I like your attitude. Don't show this thing called Lupus any mercy. Never give up, or give in.

    its a funny old battle tho dont you think?

    one min im like "Right i will not be beaten in this"

    the next im like "I cant go on, the fight is too hard"

    or the other (shout at the poor cat for no particular reason)
    thankfully she dont respond to me shouting and i would never hurt her

    I know what you mean. I say "it's too hard, and I can't go on" alot, but at the end of the day I never believe those words. I usually say that when I am frustrated and pissed off. Or when I'm exhausted and in pain. I have to be careful about yelling at my cats though, as they outnumber me 3 to 1, and they know where I sleep! My father reminds me from time to time that I have lived through two ordeals where my survival was not certain at all, and that I didn't fight to survive those situations just to give up now and let this stupid disease beat me. Sometimes that line works, and sometimes not.

    I think the most frustrating thing about Lupus is that it makes our bodies attach itself......we are fighting ourselves all the time I run into walls a lot and maybe this is my bodies way of kicking itself for being so naughty :lol: Hey, we have to find humor in everyday lives or we will just loose ourselves :!: I am sorry you are flaring again. Maybe you should do a documentary on when Lupus flares for YouTube. I think it would be very interesting and I would watch it Just stay away from the chocolate and everything will be all right.....lol.....hehehehe! Keep talking to us when you feel up to it and we will be here to help you get through it!
    As I grow to understand life less and less,
    I learn to love it more and more.

    Age 29, Lupus for last 7 years

    Medications: Methotrexate, Lyrica, Celebrex, Flexeril, Theophylline, Bactrim, Xopenex, Lisinopril, Ultram
