Tired Nurse Warrior
Last updated: May 2022
I was diagnosed in 1994, the same year I graduated from nursing school. I have been living with multi-system involvement- most recently the death of my right kidney and more involved cardiac.. Every day I thank God for allowing me the chance to see my grandchildren and great-grandchild grow. I noticed the cognitive impairment lasts longer and is more profound than before and I fear I may not be able to nurse as long as I want.. Frankly, I am scared.
Have there been things you have learned along your lupus journey that you wish had been explained to you by a healthcare provider earlier?
