Story of my Non-Healing Wound Steroids - Part 2

Posted 06-02-2014 07:53 AM by RABG

Finding a good rheumatologist wasn't going to be easy. Finding a poor rheumatologist wasn't going to be easy either. I live in a small town so I realized I would have to drive at least 30 minutes.
At the time - early 90's- there was only one such doctor and he was one of the poor ones. There are so many symptoms associated with Lupus and prednisone that it was hard to sort them out.
It was too much for the 1st. Rheumatologist so I had to move on.
The search for another doctor...

Story of my non-healing wound- steroids, part 1

Posted 05-31-2014 07:06 AM by RABG

When I read some of the posts, about people struggling with their illness, or disease it breaks my heart. I want to hug them, comfort their fears, tell them all will be well. I can't do any of that. How do I know if everything will be well. In reading their posts it brings me back to the beginning of my illness.
I have had Lupus for 25 years, probably more. If I looked at my illness on paper I would scream. So many times in the hospital, so many different doctors who have helped, so many...

First I would like to say that if you ever feel like something is just not right with your body go with your gut feeling and be your own advocate, do not stop until you get answers.

With that being said i will start with my story:

It all started when i was younger with nose bleeds and the rocking of my foot since i was a baby. As I got older I started getting more nose bleeds (more so when i was cold and at night when i was sleeping), constant headaches (worse when...

Going Thru a Personal Crisis

Posted 09-29-2010 12:57 AM by Sunsetnan

Well, I may not be writing for awhile. Although, writing about it is probably what I need to do. I'm going through a personal crisis, and will be away for awhile. I have been spending my time reading other's blogs and message board posts searching for help.

You know, sometimes, you are going pretty good for awhile, and even start running and start getting up some speed, then - splat- you get hit in the face with a tire iron. I guess life is like that. It takes you by surprise....

Chronic Illness and Getting Things Done!

Posted 09-21-2010 09:56 AM by Sunsetnan

It's getting cooler now. That means more time to work outdoors. Last evening it was cooling off and a gentle breeze blew against my face. I was doing my fall pruning and I stopped to appreciate the nice weather. Of course, that meant that I did more than I should. How could such delight at gardening lead me to such pain the next day? When you have fibromyalgia and are in a flare, this happens quite often.

No, I'm not having the "poor me's." Just stating a fact....
