Vanae: Glad to hear from you. I have a hard time with worrying that my lack of insurance will cause me to not get better. Love my kids and feel horrible that I can't be a "normal" mom and have to limit their activities because mine are limited. More afraid that I won't be there for them because I can't get the medical help I need and don't feel I can demand. (Thank you for the information on "Lupus Resources" Hippimom - I'll check it out). Still through all this, I can't help but feel truly blessed. I am here, I have the most beautiful children, I sort of have a job- a great one at that, many interests, on and on. There are just so many emotions to deal with I guess. It is like living on both sides of a double-edged sword.
Sorry to hear about
the boils. My daughter gets those small ones from time to time. Suprised the sun went through the jeans like that. Sun just makes me rash and get sick. Doesn't matter what I do to cover up, I learned there is just no way I can go in the sun. Have to have shade - no other option. I have heard of the RIT before and I was told it worked good. I believe 2 friends have used it and have had great results. I don't know how affordable it is.
Funny how as moms our needs are last, but when it comes to health we need to come first because everyone in the family depends on us. When I get sick and can't function, it occurs to me that I'm the backbone of the family. They would survive I'm sure, but what a mess it would be!
