I love your name by the way. I'm a red too, and the name is fitting :)
With your job, you're standing under fluorescent lighting aren't you? 8 or more hours a day? Guaranteed, that the lights are not helping your situation. 1 hour under those lights is equivalent to 15 minutes of direct sunlight. And we know how terrible the sun is for Lupus. We almost have to behave as though we're allergic to it. I know you're still learning a lot about your disease. This is one area that must be recognized early, addressed and action taken to limit the exposure.
The other members have given you great advice and links. Let us know if you have any questions. Any at all!
I can do anything through Jesus Christ who strengthens me. I have learned in whatever state I am in,to be content. Phillipians 4:11-13
