Welllll . . .
Stress really does some major damage. I work really hard to manage my stress levels. Like . . . how I chose to receive information. I can really let things bother me . . . or I can let it roll off. I've found that stress is a major contributor to my early flares.
Well worth finding a way to keep stress levels at a minimum. Please share any techniques that you learn. We could all use help in this department!!
this is really good advice Rosie. and worth a look myself at the information given to me about
family. Choose how I accept the information. Even information that is Lupus related, I can still choose how I recieve it and respond to it. The numbing of limbs could be a symptom of something else. But it is just information til I talk to my rheumy about
it. And even then, if it is bad news, I can still choose how I respond to it. Really really good advice.
I really did not think of stress being able to cause so many different kinds of symptoms.
