Life is far too important to be taken seriously. –Oscar Wilde, 1882
Hi Katelexanna - Wow, that is really interesting! I did a little reading up on the flourescents because I am affected by them also, and when my husband wanted to replace the regular bulbs with the energy efficient, I said No Way!!
I hope your daughter is wearing a good sunblock everyday (indoors and out). I found info about that on Lupus.org also- there are a couple of webchats on this subject. Also - the Plaquenil makes you more sun/light sensitive - something I just found out (the hard way). My rheumie never mentioned it either. Good for you for paying attention and figuring it all out!
Hi Desert Sky - good question! I hope someone has an answer.
I'm about an hour's drive away from a support group. I think it's great information for those who are in the workplace/schools. I seem to be one of those who is pretty sensitive. I've asked about and wondered how much of the UVA/UVB slipped past the standard light covers and nobody ever seemed to know. So it's a good reminder to check with a local support group chapter with questions and concerns that are not readily addressed elsewhere. And, of course - this forum manages to come through in a zillion different ways. It sometimes amazes me how little information seems to come from the rheumatologists.
