  • Sleek Classification Criteria for Lupus

    Sidney Manahan
    25 Mar 2015 | 7:12 am
    SOAP BRAIN MD. I still hear trainees mention this whenever discussing criteria features of SLE (do you remember what it stands for?). The current 1997 American College of Rheumatology criteria is actually the third version of the most commonly used classification criteria (yes, it’s NOT diagnostic criteria). However, a new set of classification criteria is being introduced – a result of 8 years of incorporating new knowledge about lupus immunology. There are actually more things to remember and I have yet to come across a mnemonic for this. The Systemic Lupus International Collaborating…

    24 Mar 2015 | 8:36 pm
    This morning my rheumatologist called to let me know that I’m all clear to start a new treatment. I’m going to be doing Actemra infusions for Still’s Disease. It’s another biologic, and the IV infusions will be once a month, much like the Benlysta I was getting last year. Actemra can also be injected at home but he said that it’s not as effective, and I could potentially see results sooner with the infusions. The side effects sound similar to Benlysta, which wasn’t bad at all. It takes 3-6 months to see improvement. I’ll be starting them sometime next…

  • 3 Things to Do After The First Diagnosis

    24 Mar 2015 | 1:03 pm
    If you are reading this you’re likely someone who has Lupus, just been diagnosed with Lupus, a caretaker or loved one of someone with Lupus. Or maybe just someone who is interested in learning about a life with Lupus. Either way, I’m glad you’re here to learn about life with Lupus! The hardest and most difficult time in anyone’s journey with Lupus is after receiving the first diagnosis. It’s a confusing, traumatic and overwhelming time. I was diagnosed roughly three and a half years ago at the age of 19. Prior to that I was a typical healthy young adult living a…

    For this post I decided to tell you guys a little story. I remembered it from a post someone wrote on FB. I breastfed both my boys. For my oldest I did cheat a little lol. I was doing both boob and formula. For my youngest I wanted just to breastfeed. It was important to me, especially since he was a “premie”. Now I’m not one of those people that tells everyone they have to breastfeed. It’s totally up to each individual. Some people are lucky and can eat whatever they want. My baby however was sensitive so I had to be on a bland diet, just not to mess with his…

    New mothers have a lot more questions than experienced mothers. Setting up a support system is important especially for someone with a chronic illness. Being covered by nib health insurance is helpful. Find a trusted friend or relative is helpful. Asking the person to stay with you for a few days is helpful. One of the biggest fears when living with a chronic illness is passing it on to your child. Asking your doctor questions about the illness may give you some peace of mind. Everyone’s illness is different so there’s no way to predict the severity of the illness. Not all illnesses are…
  • Your Almost Late for a Very Important Date

    The majority of men cringe at the though of going shopping unless it is for a hobby. Instead of putting yourself through the trauma of shopping in a crowded store, buy something online from the comfort of your living room on the sofa. Then you will be able to tell your buddies that you went sofa shopping. It will save you time and money by shopping online, especially if it is snowing or icing outdoors. Purchasing a new watch for your loved one is a great way to say ‘I love you’. Everyday the person you love will remember you when they look at the face of their watch. If your loved one…
  • Eldest son has a sexting problem

    6 May 2013 | 4:39 am
    So after I saw the snapchat nude sexting pictures on my eldest sons phone. I rationalizsed myself into doing something I’ve never done before, I decided to check his computer and see what he’s been up to. I know this is wrong and violates trust, but I need to know he’s safe and not doing something stupid like sending sending pictures to strangers. Despite knowing that I’m breaking his privacy I just couldn’t shake it and I had to check. I went through his history and found he has been using a snapchat sexting forum  for some time.  Essentially using a…
  • The Bellyaches of Chronic Illness

    19 Apr 2013 | 5:43 am
    Some of the side effects from my medications cause a lot of problems with my stomach off and on. I’ve said something to my doctor in the past about the stomach pain, but he said if I don’t take the medication for the lupus I’ll end up with flares with the lupus, which means more prednisone. So I’ve learned to deal with the aches in my stomach. When you’ve been sick for over a decade your always looking for some relief from pain. I didn’t know about digestive enzymes until I was offered a bottle to try. I was very hesitant to try them so I did call my doctor about medication…

    An important part of being a woman is taking care of you. Eating healthy food, exercising regularly, and getting enough rest everyday is very important. Sometimes it can be easier said than done, but we have to try to be good to our bodies. Eating a healthy diet with plenty of fruit, vegetables, and protein will help your body function and make you feel good. But sometimes our bodies don’t absorb enough from our food so we will need to buy womens health supplements. The supplement can help make up the difference between what your body has and what it needs to function. Supplements like…

  • Thanking that I'm not Planking anymore!

    25 Mar 2015 | 4:00 am
    At the end of last year, (November 7th, to be exact), I blogged about an exercise challenge that I'd heard about from one of my retailers. It was called the 30-Day Plank Challenge, and you can read about it here.  I was excited to try it - it was supposed to work wonders on the abs, and I'm always looking for better ways to strengthen my core (primarily because I don't do much strength training to begin with.)Johnny, Dee, Bee and I decided we could do it together, the girls planning to opt out if and when Barbies or Legos needed more attention than their abdomen muscles.So we began.
