Well friday will be exactly a year since I was diagnosed with lupus. I saw my consultant today who could not believe I was the same woman who walked into his clinic a year ago.
I have been on azathioprin for a year .. and have been off steroids for two months .. the withdrawal was horrific .. but I have done it. I have also lost a steady 1lb a week for the last 2 weeks (it just started falling off with healthy eating and the 6 week steroid free mark), I am now almost a stone lighter than I was a month ago! ..
I feel postive, great and a new woman. I have energy. I still have tired days but they r once a month rather than every day. I have also been ulcer free for 6months .. the first time in 25 years!
my hair feels great, my skin looks great, the headachs r rare! even the confusion is subsiding!
I just wanted to say that there can sometimes be a positve part of a lupie life and I just want to share it
happy lupie day to me!
