    Went to the doctor Tuesday and got the bad news

    I went to the doctor on Tuesday,bad news.I have Lupus which there is no cure for.It was last week Thursday I felt like crap feeling fatigued out,joint pain in a couple spots and muscle pain.It was done by a specialist and there is good news also.I have a long good life keeping it under control taking medication for it.I am feeling better now since I was diagnosed with this,started taking the medication yesterday and this is for the rest of my life.

    Hi daniellej

    I will continue to focus on the positive you have pointed out; you have now got a diagnosis for what you've obviously been suffering with for a while, you have already said you are feeling better with your medication and, finally, you are a strong person as you are facing what it before you by sharing your life on here.

    I admire women like you, despite having problems you are looking to the future and making positives from it - not easy.

    I hope the medication brings you a better quality of life and you continue to move forward.

    I want to fully second Rosie's post. It captures everything I wanted to say.

    It is amazing how things run through a family. I guess it is something, beside you being family, that will bind you together. You know you are not alone.

    I hope your days are coming together. Keep up the exercise. I am learning it is not only good for the body but fantastic for clearing the mind.

    Sounds like you've got some loving and grateful daughters.

    Mind you, you have your hands full with 2 teenagers and one nearly there!

    I admire your positive attitude, Danielle, you are inspiring to all who follow your story.
    Too often we underestimate the power of a touch, a smile, a kind word, a listening ear, an honest compliment, or the smallest act of caring, all of which have the potential to turn a life around.

    The specialist said keeping lupus under control is the main thing and I am doing this.Taking the medication for life helps also.I still have a long life ahead of me and I stay healthy.Heart issues too on my dad's side of the family.I had a hole in my heart repaired 2 years ago.

    Keep up the positive thinking work, danielle, you are inspiring others, those of us who post as well as guests who come to read threads and may get inspired as well.
