My goal, to return to who I am
Showing her artistic flare
Her Blondie phase
Shared Food & Fitness Trackers
So far 2012 has started out as a rough month. I've not worked in about four weeks now. Six years ago I had been diagnosed with FMS/CFS but as it turns out that diagnosis was full on incorrect. This month I have seen four different specialist and had blood work tested three times, x-rays twice, CT with contrast, ultra sound, pap, mammogram, bladder test and still a lot more to run. It finally all came together when I decided that I would see a Chiropractor thinking that since I'm not finding any relief with the nerve, pain, muscle relaxers, sleeping pills, surely she can help somehow. And oh did she help!!!!!!! She pulled all my records from the Rhumetologist I had been seeing and found in the blood tests they had run there that I actually have Lupus. So now she has me seeing the people that I need to see, the tests that I need to have run, the diet I need to be eating, and she's still keeping me in line. I feel a lot better and once i get the last of my paperwork done I will return to work. So, it's been a long time since I was on the site but now I'm back. I want to find the support from others with Lupus, and support to help me hit the goals I have set. I'm ready to get started.
To learn about Lupus, to manage my flares/remissions. To connect with others so I can learn from them and share experiences.
Stretching more, relaxing more, exercising more. Still too early to tell what kind of effect it is going to have.

**Hi ****my SPARKling Pal**
Yesterday, I put together a new team, **EARTH*ANGELS** *Becoming Aware*
(feel free to check it out if you like, team link is on my page under teams)
I got to thinking..... What if... Each one of us is an *EARTH*ANGEL*
And What if... when we got to Earth we forgot how to fly, because we only carry one wing within us and we need the company of another so that we may fly together.........
And... What if... We wear our halo on our Face, also known as a SMILE, and we are to wear that smile every day, as a mirror to remind others of their halo's, when they have Slipt....
And ... What if... Our Guardian, A.K.A. Guiding Angel has come disguised in the cloak of Friendship.... to light our way on this Earthly path....
Whether you believe in angels or not... Friendship to me is the next best thing its like having a guardian angel, a guiding light sharing this life journey with us... Walking side by side and in spirit hand in hand.... eternal friends sharing their light ....a SPARKling Pal
Thank You my EARTH ANGEL friend, my SPARKling Pal for sharing the gift of friendship with me. May you ALLways Be Aware that you are in the Company of ANGELS........
