Lupus and Fibromyalgia

Well, so much for trying to get blogs written for Lupus Awareness Month! Hahaha! Oh well, at least I was able to get a couple done. And that is just how a person with Lupus needs to think; if it’s not done, then it’s not done and not to fret about what did not get done that day. However, I am fully aware that this easier said than done. At times I struggle with the frustration of how to let things go and\or take one day at a time. And honestly I don’t know if I would have learned these lessons, if not for Lupus.

This month is also Fibromyalgia Awareness Month with the National Awareness Day being May 12th!

Lupus and Fibromyalgia are so similar that some days I can’t tell which disease I am dealing with. Below are some Fibromyalgia symptoms

Thank you for taking the time to read these awareness posts! And remember, knowledge is POWER! 🙂

I am a geeky animal lover and have an American Bulldog named Storm. Storm is my everything. She helps keep me sane by being my companion pet. I am an expert in chronic pain as I have Systemic Lupus, Fibromyalgia and migraines. I was diagnosed with Lupus in 2000 and the rest followed after that year.

    1. Yes, they are. 😦 And the symptoms can be tricky; sometimes I don’t know if it’s the disease or if I actually have the flu. Thank you kindly for the wishes! I wish you well too. 🙂 Have a great rest of the week!

    1. Yes, they can be! She is a bit of a brat though and doesn’t come near me when I’m not feeling well. Haha! But sometimes she will cuddle with me on my bad days. 🙂 Thank you kindly for the warm wishes and purrayers! I hope you have a wonderful week!

  1. I have fibro, celiac, depression (go figure) and now facing the possibility of lupus. Reading other people’s stories helps me get through those dark times and hopefully one day there’s a cure for all of us. Stay strong!
