Okay everyone...I am sorry for being short, weepy and mean. I have been dealing with major news concerning my health. My rhematoid arthritis has flared up and there is a good chance i might have lupus. I am in denial...no I am angry...no I am not sure if I am up to this fight...i am lucky though, it is concentrated in my joints...which is why I ache all the time now...most people with this mild of a form won't worry about it attacking vital organs...at least not in this early stage...the doctor has said that i probably will have a good 10-30 years depending on how good I take care of myself...that means watching my stress levels, and my diet and figuring out what course of treatment...i am scared...and unloved...

Hey there! I am so bad about LJ and keeping up with it...I just saw this post of yours.

Just wanted to give you a bit of encouragement..I have both rhematoid arthritis and lupus too! And it hasn't done anything major to me. Oh, my joints hurt something fierce sometimes, and I shouldn't be out in the sun, but I've got the same kind you have...(since I was a kid...they used to put me in the whirlpool at the hospital when I was a kid) and really, other than a minor inconvenience at times, it hasn't affected my life too much!!!

So....:::hugs::: don't worry or stress over it! Really. And remember Advil is your friend, and so are hot showers and warm compresses. =)

Thanks Brenda. Unfortunately I can't take antiinflammatories...they do damamge to my stomach. So I am stuck taking Tylenol. I really do appreciate your advice. I too have had RA since I was little so I understand. It does help to have a friend who has the same ailments.
