@colormeroses Thank you beautiful WARRIOR!
This is why I do what I do. This has literally brought tears to my eyes, as many times I feel like all that I do is in vain. I try my best to educate and uplift others during this journey, because I didn't have that newly diagnosed with lupus. Thank you to all of my followers/supporters, I sincerely appreciate and love you all. Sending hugs and my love to all of you from New Orleans! Never lose hope lupieville!
At the beginning of this walk, I couldn't feed or groom my myself. I was diagnosed with systemic lupus June 2005, at the prime of my life, age 30. By profession, I am a Master's level social worker, but hasn't been able to work in a number of years. Since the diagnosis I have been diagnosed with fibromyalgia and rheumatoid arthritis. I have suffered from pericarditis, polycystic ovarian syndrome, swollen intestines, hypertension, migraines, fluid around my retina, 3 retinal surgeries, macular degeneration, lung disease, kidney failure, gastrointestinal problems, neuropsychiatric, peripheal neuropathy, chest pains, palpitations, alopecia, depression/ anxiety. As well, severe lupus fog where I couldn't remember how to spell, count money, and on occasions couldn't remember how to get home. I wrote this to show, although I have been through hell and back, I refuse to allow lupus to break me.... BY THE GRACE OF GOD, I'M STILL STANDING! Stay lifted, as if you lose hope, you have nothing πŸ’―... πŸ˜˜πŸ€—πŸ’œβœ‹πŸ½πŸ¦‹ πŸ™πŸ½#womanofstrength #thisismytestimony

Day 25 #fallwhole30 - I'm completely over eating today; not overeating like eating too much but I just don't feel like eating. So I threw this together before I went Thanksgiving shopping. I had a tiny bit of my paleo mayo in a jar, I poured in some Tessemae's ranch dressing and then threw in some carrots and shook the jar up. Two hard boiled eggs added for protein.

While no single test can determine whether a person has lupus, several laboratory tests may help the doctor confirm a diagnosis, or at least rule out other ailments. #LupusFact #FactFriday

Day 23 #fallwhole30 - today was a pretty stressful day. We had a pipe burst, one of my FB memories today was my mom's last trip to the oncologist, Topher was late to his on-campus class, but on the bright side he found out his nose looks like a Ninja Turtle. 🐒
