    It’s disheartening to lose momentum for me. It really is. The valium they prescribed is making me a bit introspective and slightly depressed- I know it’s the meds and not me per se. Being forced to sit/lay on one’s ass when I have deadlines is not my thing at all. Being in pain is also not an option. I’ve thought about things I haven’t thought about in decades this week. I’ve come face-to-face with the fact that I’ve let my supplements slide that control my lupus flares (high dose vitamin d3). Completely my fault. I still have to finish the dining…

    I’ve been in hospital since Tuesday. I went to my usual doctor about my persistent headache, and my difficulty being upright due to lightheadedness and feeling short of breath. By the time I saw my doctor, my heart rate was 180bpm and I almost fell over in the waiting room, so she sent me straight to hospital. I’m having unusual symptoms and they can’t figure out exactly what’s going on. My heart rate settles to 90-100 when I’m lying down, but as soon as I’m upright, it’s jumping to 160-170 with no real changes in my blood pressure. It’s become…
  • Lupus and BDSM!

    Under Lock and Key

    So I’ve been asked about my health a lot here lately. How am I able to participate in BDSM activities when I have a disease such as Lupus and Fibromyalgia? I take a lot of medication a day to try to keep my Lupus and Fibromyalgia in check and I take a monthly infusion but even then sometimes there are breakthrough flares of pain and fatigue that do incapacitates me. I’ve been pondering how to respond to this for a while and I’ve been writing this piece for a while. It’s a hard question to answer but here goes: I have a very loving and caring Dominant/Husband.

    I had an appointment with my rheumatologist a few weeks ago, and was greeted by this handy dandy, stand alone tablet in my exam room.Pretty nifty, don't you think?I browsed around the tabs, checking the various educational programs and topics available.

The nurse came in as I was browsing, and she led me to the following screen, which allows you to actually subscribe to the videos at home:The tablet and…

  • New Lupus Study for Lupus Nephritis - Think your lupus kidneys would be interested?

    31 Jul 2015 | 4:00 am
    I just heard about a new lupus study being conducted, and I thought I'd share. It's targeted toward lupus nephritis, or kidney involvement and inflammation due to lupus. The study is testing the effectiveness of a new investigational immunosuppressant drug developed by a canadian-based pharma company. Can't have too many drugs specifically designed to treat lupus, now, can we?Personally, I developed kidney involvement pretty early on, which is why I started another drug called CellCept years ago. As you may remember, CellCept works wonders for me, and I've been on it twice - once for a period…
