Life After Steroids

My name is Gena. The past three years have a rollercoaster of health issues but I am happy to report that I seem to be getting the hang of them. A horrible fall, symptoms that didn't make sense, along with so much more led to a diagnosis of Lupus (SLE) I was placed on a heavy steroid treatment in this process & left on them far too long. Over 6 months I gained over 75lbs. Depression set in & at times I felt hopeless. I still have lupus but I am off of prednisone & the other steroids. Now I am ...
My name is Gena. The past three years have a rollercoaster of health issues but I am happy to report that I seem to be getting the hang of them. A horrible fall, symptoms that didn't make sense, along with so much more led to a diagnosis of Lupus (SLE) I was placed on a heavy steroid treatment in this process & left on them far too long. Over 6 months I gained over 75lbs. Depression set in & at times I felt hopeless. I still have lupus but I am off of prednisone & the other steroids. Now I am left with the aftermath of what they created. I lost 20lbs just by coming off of the steroids but now I must tackle the other 55lbs. I joined this sight to help myself and I hope to spread some inspiration to others. I have lupus but I've chosen to be a survivor. My goal is to lose 55lbs, run a 10K, and play tennis within the next year. With prayer, hard work, and the help of all of you I know I will get there. Please feel free to message me anytime & ask for advice or help. I pray each day that we are all healthy and happy by 2010! Good luck to all!

My Program:
I am trying to at least walk 30 minutes per day. Some may find this minor but with SLE & RA everyday I achieve it is an accomplishment!
