I watch House too, but have never seen the show with lupus on it. but they seem to be having a little marathon of House on certain days. Will make sure I see them. It seems to me that "It is never lupus", is how some doctors really do respond to Lupus. My good friend nearly died before they admitted she had Lupus. She was 13 years old and in the hospital when she was diagnosed.
your post reminded me again that I have forgotten my multivitamin stuff. this one has folic acid, calcium ,magnesium and potassium. I want to remember to do this, so went straight and got them out of the cabinet and dumped them on my bed. I won't forget if I have them by my bed. thank you for reminding me
your signature thing is what reminded me. I read all of those to see how similar our medications are. I didn't realize that chron's disease could also go into remission. I think I went into remission one time. I had been real sick due to lupus when dr. marlowe was alive and he put me on prednisone and plaquenil. did not tell me to stay out of the sun however. I got to the place where I could once again clean my house in one day. cut my own grass with a push mower. I would be happy today if I could just clean my house in two days.
thank all of you for being just as you are
you are very welcome meowese
It will take lots of reading for me and my memory to get myself educated due to this list. But I remember chron's and what it does, and so thankful I don't have it. the constant uncontrollable diarrhea has stopped. hopefully it was just the side effects of plaquenil. but I learned even from this. Learned that wearing depends is not the worst thing in the world;) having no control over diarrhea was worse than wearing depends.
I would like to have that House shirts myself. I have put off and put off getting one of those handicap tags, and it may be time to get it. Especially for Walmart parking, and doctors offices too I guess.
