I am new here and just wanted to get me feet wet. I have been seeing dr.s for about a year working towards a Lupus diagnosis. I have sun sensitivity, extreme fatigue, numbness in my extremities, Raynaud's, weight loss, mental sharpness issues and a high ANA. I could just use some encouragement. I was doing quite well for the last several months and then the last three weeks have been rough.
I just had my lab work done and my ANA's were 1:5264. That freaked me out...and just thought one of you could offer me a bit of perspective.
I do really well with it most days. I Home school my children who are 7, 4 and 2. Thankfully my 2 oldest are very helpful around the house! I exercise every day and eat mostly whole foods. Mostly because it makes me feel better and a raw fruits and veggies are less work:) My husband is just the best man I know, so he takes care of me when gets home from work. But it can be a long day until 5pm.
I have come to know God in a way that still baffles me. He has lifted me up on days when I didn't know how I was going to get through. I see his hand with me so strongly that I don't know how my life could have been so shallow before.
Well, that's where I am. I am anxiously waiting for my first "Hello". Be blessed...
