Your life is not over. Lupus can be very controllable -- of course it can also go wild without warning. But stick to what it is doing now, not what it might do. Worrying about
it will definitely cause stress with can definitely increase your symptoms.
My lupus was once very bad -- total loss of my normal life due to cognitive dysfunction (bad brain!) and joint/muscle inflammation issues. Now it is quiet, and I'm mostly functional. There is no need to plan your funeral.
From your meds I am guessing you have already seen a rheumotologist -- if not, then that is the specialist you need to make an appointment with.
If the Hydroxychloroquine and the Fluocinonide Cream don't bring you relief, you may be treated with Prednisone (or other cortio-steroid). A third kind of treatment would be Imuran, Cellcept, or MTX. There are lots of optons to explore.
On a day to day basis -- just do the things you need to do to take care of yourself. 1) Get enough restorative sleep. 2) Eat regularly and reasonably. 3) Get daily moderate exercise. 4) Stay in the moment, do the next right thing, keep worry to a minimum, do not panic. 5) Take medications as prescribed. 6) Report promptly to your Dr with changes in symptoms/meds.
I have never heard of "digestacure" and I think the article you quoted is a piece of hogwash trying to sell you something and make lots of money but not help your health in the slightest.
Hope that's helped, let us know what other questions you have!
