I got caught up in my own response to flares and didn't respond to you directly about your question. but I did speak to it from where I am, emotionally, during flares.
I am still so new here, that I really do not have much advice to offer. I learn slowly, so it will take me some time of listening before I can remember all the stuff others talk about on this forum.
I had a father who had me under the car at four months pregnant. He was teaching me what to do if my engine locked up. crying was not an option to my father. I learned that lesson well. and I am so grateful that he taught me so many things that I really did need to know.
Without those lessons learned from my ex-marine father, I would probably be crying all the time;) I was overwhelmed by this last lupus flare that started in April. I had just had a heart attack in October, they wouldn't give me plaquenil, or arthrotec for the pain. At my wits end, and pretty sure I would have been crying, if crying had been an option.
I went to the youtube.com and listened to the song. It is really good. Must be astounding for Christians. made me think of the Indian who lives in Canada, and with whom I talked when I first arrived here. Wondering if he is Christian. many Indians are. I can't remember his name or his tribe. shame on me. but that's me can't remember much of anything unless it has been around for a thousand years.
I believe that there truly is another side of broken for all people no matter thier color, creed, or national origin. And that other side often leads me out of some very dark places.
Thank you for sharing this site.
I have to start doing an exercise program for my lungs. I'm not looking forward to it but if it helps then I'm game. I used those bands years ago but I didn't keep up with it. I guess like anything you have to be motivated. But you are in luck we can all motivate you with cyber power!
Hey I tried to find the youtube thing. I couldn't find it anywhere. do you have a link I could click on for it? I spent 20 mins. trying everything I could think of but no luck .
Hang in there hun
love ya carol
