Good morning! Today I am thinking it is going to be a trying day as I struggle with pain from SLE. Systemic Lupus!!It has a potential to be extremely nasty and I have had yrs of experience living with it but I can safely say it is very painful and I am rarely in remission. It is something I have had to commission myself to adjust to daily regimens of medications,rest and stress reduction. I am type A and this is very hard for me. I struggle with pain daily. Some days worse than others. I know a lot of people with SLE are worse off than I am and who and what right do I have to complain?I am still alive and functioning.PRAISE to GOD!!!!It changed the way I look, the way I feel, The way I live my life. I am simply gliding through on the stepping stones of life and thru pain and perserverance and God's grace I make it. Thus far at least. So with that being said. I need to go and live my day accordingly. I am so thankful that I have prims to occupy my mind with something I enjoy doing. Instead of sitting around worrying and not being able to do a thing about it I just live with the pain and bear it.
