My Eyes Are Open Now!

I have been a very healthy person until 5 years ago.

Finally being taken seriously

I began to think my doctor just got tired of hearing the same old whining from me. Just within the last 2 years did he begin to take me seriously! My blood work came back showing that l had either lupus or RA. After more testing, we found I have both, plus fibromyalgia, Raynaud’s & also developed collagenous colitis. I could not leave my house for almost a month. Oh, there is more, but this is supposed to be about lupus!

Searching for ways to cope

I had two very stressful days this week & ended up in bed for two days, had to go from my cane to a walker..I haven’t given up but I am very close.
How does one avoid stress? I would love to know the answer to that question.
