I was told of having lupus 18 years ago by a blood test. It was as if someone knocked me to the floor. I had no idea what it was, I had a new baby and two teenagers at home that depended on me for every thing. I had a job that was demanding, my boss even called me while I was in the labor room wanting to know where certain things were in his office. Can you imgaine! I think that the baby's grandmother finally asked him to quit calling. It has been one up and down hill battle ever since. I take so many med's, it is crazy. Lupus has taken most of my youngest son's years away fromhimas he worrys so much about me. Most of my body is changed, some parts are gone. But the one thing that it can not takr awayfromme is my love for my family, Husband-Children-Grandchildren, andthebest of all my faith in aloving God. Through all of the pain and yes there is alot of it Iknow that he has carried my through. Rosie10debView Thread
I was not going to post my story either. I will be happy to help you in any way that I can. Our bodies do not respond well to any changes. Meaning- med's, enviroment changes, or if God help when we get a little thing like just a cold. Your Dr. sounds like my13 team of Dr.'s. As sad as it is we just have to do the waiting game. I will pray for you as time goes on, and believe me prayer does work. God's blessing's.View Thread
