  • Letting My Hair Down

    Whimsical Thoughts
    11 Nov 2014 | 5:13 pm
    Rapunzel eat your heart out.  There is no way yo can let your hair down the way I can.  Granted you’ve got that whole ability to pull it back up where as once mine is down, well, it’s down for good.  But still I’ve got the whole getting the hair down like a pro.  Practice makes perfect and all that.  Sure chemo helps a bit too. 😉 Of course before I started this new adventure that is now my life, letting my hair down meant something different.  It meant stepping away from studies and serious life.  It meant going out and enjoying myself, just cutting loose.  Of…
  • What is Lupus?

    leoloveandlupus
    11 Nov 2014 | 3:36 pm
    So a lot of people have no idea what Lupus is. It’s a chronic, autoimmune disease where your immune system basically fights off your healthy tissues. Your system is confused and can’t tell the bad guys from the good guys. Gee thanks body, for beating yourself up. Chronic, pretty much means you’re stuck with this disease for life. Lupus is very difficult to diagnose since the symptoms for patients range and everyone has different symptoms. No two cases are exactly alike. I believe one of the toughest things about dealing with Lupus is that it’s not a disease that you…

  • Thoughts from a Veteran, on Veteran's Day

    11 Nov 2014 | 11:52 am
    I had this blog all written in my head. Knew exactly what I was going to say, and how I was going to say it. Yesterday, it all changed. Every single solitary word. My husband, who is also a veteran, is diabetic. He has what is known as diabetic neuropathy, which simply stated means he has no feeling in his feet. None. Step on a nail – nothing. Step on hot rocks? Nothing. So Sunday morning, when he evidentially kicked a piece of furniture, breaking his toe and tearing his toenail, nothing. I looked down, and his toe was bloody. Having been through intensive wound care with him, I knew…

    With the treatment of my Lupus underway, the sun was rising chasing away the night which had encompassed me for 5 long years.  There was a bright, beautiful world out there full of life and vitality.  It beckoned enticingly for me to join in its energy and vigor. I longed for a part of the life I saw out ahead of me, but between that world and I lay a canyon that the dragon ruled.  I may have been winning the fight with Lupus, but PTSD still owned me. I first met my psychologist in May of 2014.  After talking with me about my history,  he explained to me the therapy that he felt…

  • Background on Golf Bags

    Vincent Goldman
    11 Nov 2014 | 2:02 am
    Golf bags are an essential part of playing golf. Most country clubs will not admit anyone without the proper golf attire and golfing materials. Golf bags contain the golf clubs, golf balls, shirts, spare shoes, beverages and other essentials like cellphones, wallets and keys. They reflect much about the player and his preference when playing golf. A Brief History Golf is quite an old sport. It dates back to the 13th century in Scotland. During that time, players simply bind a cord around their golf clubs. Most players do not even have more than 1 golf club. Early golf clubs were made of wood.
  • What Makes the Best e Liquid?

    29 Oct 2014 | 11:37 pm
    Electronic cigarettes are all the rage these days. These are battery-powered cigarette-like contraptions that heat a cartridge to deliver flavored water vapor that contains e liquid to the user. The contraption mimics a real cigarette without the smoke and after effects brought about by carcinogenic components. The important component of an e cigarette is the e juice. The best e liquid can be sourced from a lot of different manufacturers. These differ in flavor and the level of nicotine content. This is the liquid that serves as the fuel for the electronic cigarette. When heated, it becomes…

  • Let Sleeping Pugs Lie: lupus naps and how to take one

    21 Nov 2014 | 4:00 am
    Now that you've had a chance to digest the sleep article from Monday's post, I thought I'd give you a little more motivation to get that extra shut eye you know you need. Way back when, I needed all the motivation I could get. And then some.When I started my daily naps back in 2003, I was not happy about it. I knew I felt better after taking a rest in the middle of the day, and I could tell that my health was improving because of that break. But it wasn't a welcomed break from my day. After all, I had stuff to do. And it wasn't going to get done while I was napping.But somehow, I managed to…

  • The Power of Sleep: my new favorite article on one of my favorite things.

    17 Nov 2014 | 4:00 am
    Sleep, as you know, is critical for me. I need a lot of it, and at specific times during the day. It's paramount for my health and wellness, and it's become an indispensable tool in allowing me to stay healthy with lupus. That's why I love this article titled "The Power of Sleep". It uncovers new evidence that suggests that getting the proper amount of sleep shouldn't be viewed as a luxury; it should be thought of as a necessity. I couldn't have said it better myself! Take a few minutes to read the article here - I really enjoyed hearing about what my brain actually does while I'm asleep. I'm…
  • OTC bottles in the Pillpouch? You betcha!

    14 Nov 2014 | 4:00 am
    I love hearing from Despite Lupus readers. It always reminds me that I'm not crazy for feeling the way I do, or for fretting about the things I fret about. All of a sudden, I feel like the most normal gal around...or at least like a crazy lupite who's not alone!The same thing happens when I hear from pillbag customers. I know that my attempts to make my own life with lupus a little more bearable have resonated with someone else. That there are others who prefer the feel of fabric to clunky old plastic, or a colorful pattern to generic, sterile hospital blue.So - when I heard from a pillbag…
  • Living Well with Lupus: An Iterative process

    12 Nov 2014 | 4:00 am
    I'm still learning. I'm still learning how to take care of myself.I'm still learning how to make good decisions. And I'm still learning how to ask for help. But I ambetter than I used to be. Developing skills to live well with lupus is, thankfully, a process that I’ve been able to build upon. They are skills, because they are abilities I must hone and practice over time in order to do them efficiently and effectively. Some will come naturally. Others are counter-intuitive. Still others I could only learn through trial and error. But I’ve had to work at developing them. And…
