My Eyes Are Open Now!
Last updated: September 2022
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.
How are you most likely to respond when someone offers you unsolicited advice about your lupus?
