Diagnosed with lupus in 2004. Suffer from joint pain, chronic fatigue, and more recently rapid heart rate. Even though it often feels like life's not worth living when I feel so awful, I do my best to keep a positive attitude and live life to the fullest.
Hi from Molly's Fund Fighting Lupus! I just wanted to let you know that we have a live online support group coming up next Thursday- it's a great way to chat with other people with lupus. You can sign up at mollysfund.org - I hope you can join us!
I read your journal and wanted to say I'm so sorry you are suffering so much. I have fibro and developing Lupus and so far except for blurry vision I'm doing OK on the meds. I just finished reading the Lupus Recovery Diet. If you google it you can buy it and download it - not expensive. What they wrote made a lot of sense and is backed up by scientific data. If things get worse for me I may give it a try, at the very least it calms everything down if you try it for a little bit.
