Hi sheryl, don't forget to get the family history of illness as well. I remember when i came here I was so overwhelmed. I was thinking. Ok they thought it was another problem so I studied that, than they said no it's something else so I studied that. Than they said no it's Lupus and by than I didn't want to study about any more diseases. On top of that I was saying why does it have to be Lupus? of all the things it could be why does it have to be something that is so hard to understand? The lousey disease is mind boggeling and in the beginning completely overwhelming. None of it made in sense. Truth is if I really think about it it still doesn't make any sense. I mean come on I get patriotic toes red white and blue! I mean what the heck is that about? My face lights up like rudolph? My legs swell up and turn red enough to glow in the dark. My hair falls out? I feel like death warmed over and that all of the sudden, it's Hi everyone I'm feeling great today how bout you??????????. It's is a crazy disease. The feeling of loosing your mind goes with the territory. I'm so glad you found the group and that are so many wonderful people here to help you. Having a supportive family is quite a blessing too. I'm glad you are getting your pain under control. I think the pain wears me down more than anything.
I hope you have a great day!
