AWWWWWW WELCOME DENISE!!!!! IM so happy you are here!!!
Im 37 and i have had Lupus for a little over 3yrs now(my symptoms date as far back as 11yrs ago though) and ive come to learn that THIS disease (along with some "piggy back" diseases) has just ALTERED my lifestyle. Ive had to learn to make changes and adjustments and i do EVERYTHING that is within MY POWER and CONTROL to HELP myself! I HAVE had acupuncture and its GREAT! I would get it MORE often BUT insurance doesnt cover it SO, i get a treatment when i CAN. ITS WONDERFUL! I also eat as organic as i CAN, i stay away from UNNATURAL odors if possible, flourescent bulbs, sunlight and smoke (even smoke from the grill makes me flare),i LISTEN to my BODY and i get to the dr asap, i EXERCISE and STRETCH daily if i CAN, i lift weights (VERY LIGHT though!), i rest when my body says to do so, i TRY to reduce daily stress in my life (LOL,this is a tuffy!) and i tell myself the things i SHOULD to help me to FEEL a bit better if possible! WOO HOO to POSITIVE THINKING!!!! HUGS!XXXXXXXXXXX
We Live in a MORTAL, FRAIL, IMPERFECT world in which the word "FAIR" doesn't always apply.Make EVERY MOMENT COUNT with the ones you LOVE because it can end in the blink of an eye. Love, Jeannette
