Hi Everyone, My name is Lauretta, I have been with Spark now for about 5 months, I was diagnosed with Lupus in 2004,The first couple years were really rough, but I have been able to get over the worst and I am only having to take Plaquinil now which I am thankful for I was on Methatrexate as well and really had a hard time with it.
I have been taking a Vitamin D supplement to help the extreme Fatigue.It has helped and feel I have a bit more energy than I did before.Since I have been with spark and making sure I eat healthy and get some exercise in everyday has helped a great deal as well.
I have lost 16 pounds since I have been here and that is a breakthrough on its own for me.
Before I would lose 5 gain 10. but I have lost 16 and not gained any back in 5 months since I have been here.
I love the tools,the resources and all the wonderful people I have met here. Yes I have Lupus but I refuse to let it get me down anymore, I did at the beginning it was poor me my life is over, then one day I said forget that I am still alive and I am going to do what I can to live my life to fullest.
Spark's wellness resources has helped a great deal and has given me the tools I needed to begin my lifestyle change to become healthier and Happier overall.
I am glad I found this team and I look forward to chatting with all of you.
