Since I last posted, I haven't lost anymore inches nor pounds but at least I'm not gaining! lol!
I really, really hope to get off this plateau soon!
Oh, while I'm posting, I might as well explain what SLE is. SLE stands for Systematic Lupus Erythematosus, Lupus for short. It's a disease where your own immune system produces mutant antibodies that attacks your own organs, like the kidneys, the skin, your heart, even your brain.
In my case, it was my kidneys and my skin. The long and the short of it is, I now have to go for dialysis 3 times a week. I know it sounds horrible but I've come to terms with it. I could just go on and on asking everyone and God why? Why?! WHY?! but what good does it do?! So, I'm just taking it one day at a time and hoping for the best. My friends tell me that at the most I can hope to live for another 20 years, well I've been on dialysis for slightly over 2 years now so I guess I have slightly over 18 years more to live, that is if my calculations are correct.
So, does anyone here have SLE? Feel free to share!
