Hi I have been fighting with lupus sle since April of 06. In the last 3 weeks I am having to use a cane to get by. Work is hell because my boss doesn't understand what crippling is. I am almost at ropes end. No I won't do anything stupid but I am at a loss of where to turn. I have no support system. I am in Edmonton, Alberta. My family is one of those that if we don't talk about it it's not happening. So for you that have loving families, count yourself as one of the lucky ones.

I'm a newbie,I have had SLE lupus for 6 yrs. now. I was diagnosed when I was 15 yrs old. I never knew much about it to begin with because I never did research until now. I just had a baby and pregnancy was hell, the lupus was worse than it's ever been.I always had some sort of problem that I never knew what it was about and now I know. If anyone has any easier way of coping with this disease please do tell because it's been a rough road and I'm a single mom having to go back to work soon. I go for my first appt. to see a rheumatologist in march. I don't know how much that will help but hopefully it does. Also anyone on disability for lupus? The information would help.

After many years of very elusive and confusing symptoms I was diagnosed with Lupus about 2.5 years ago. I also have Celiac Sprue. I take Plaquenil, Mobicox, array of vitamins and minerals and some herbal remedies on the advice of my rheumatologist. This is helping a lot. I eat a healthy diet and have managed to remain physicaly active. The massive infections have stopped. For most of my life I had been able to keep up with everyone else & even surpass most folks energywise. I now recognize that I may have been doing it out of sheer willpower. I don't look sick but I sure as hell don't feel well. I lost my job about 6 months ago along with my long term disability benefit. My regular medical benefits continue for 9 more months. Now I'm so achy and tired that I fear that I'll never be able to have a normal life or hold down a full time job again. I literally fall asleep in the afternoon and sometimes sleep for up to four hours. I'm talking deep sleep with complete with dreams. This is in addition to a full night's sleep. I would sure be interested in hearing from Debbie about natural ways of controlling the disease. I'm so exhausted that I'm at my wit's end. [email protected]

I know of a new product that is gel-based and contains Chondroitin Sulphate,Glucosamine Sulphate, MSM, and Celadrin. Each of these four ingredients has been found to maintain joint fuction and health. Now all four are in an easy to assimilate gel pack. email me [email protected] for more information

I really don't know what to expect from Lupus. I was diagoned 2006 with Lupus. I got sunburned and it caused a rash and then sores. My Primary care physcian sent to the dermotolgyist and from there he sent to a rheumathoudist and diagnosed me as having skin lupus. She put me on medication for a year. Said I did not have full blown lupus but should be treated for 6 moths to a year. What should I expect next?

To whom it may concern, I am 42 years old, I was diagnosed with lupus in aug 2004, my life will never be the same. Lupus sle is so painful and debilitating, there are some days that I wanted to curl up in my bed and die. My best advise is to treat your lupus natually, start by organic juicing, fresh fruits and veggies, use a very potent omega 3 fish oil, liquid vitamins, and detoxify your body with a colon cleanse. go to a health food store, and ask a sales assistant if you have any questions or concerns. and lastly , get rid of your junk food, and processed food out of the fridge, your body wants vitamins and antioxadents to repair the damaged cells from the lupus, thats the only way to treat your lupus naturally, and hopefully go into remission. Take care.
