Bertie if you were diabetic, you know the ones who need injections 3 times a day. Would you just make sure you eat the right things insted of having your injections? Well because of the wonderful progress in science, people diagnosed with Lupus today have a higher chance of living. If you were diagnosed over 50 years ago, you would most likely die within 5 years of diagnosis.
Now I would think that was an excellent reason for taking the medication. Is this co-worker a doctor? Probably not. If I were you tell this person to do some research into Lupus. I do recommend you to take a serious look at your lifestyle and make some changes to improve your chances of fighting this disease.
