I was talking to one of my mums friend on Saturday. I said to her that my teacher thinks i should train to be a social worker. I said i wouldn't be able to handle the 5 years of education anyway.
My mums friend was like no you can not do that to much on your feet.
Later on she is saying you can live a normal life apart from flare ups.
I was just thinking shut up will ya. How is it normal when i am 16 years old and can not bend down using my knees. I can not wash and dry my own hair. Have to have help in and out of the bath. Can't do shirt buttons up can not go shoe laces up. Walking to the closest bus tries my feet out.
I doubt that is a normal life. Everyday i feel pain. There is not a single day when i am not having pain in my hands or feet. When she was 16 she could do all the stuff above. I thought just shut up because she knows nothing. She thinks because she knows someone else with lupus that she is a flipping expert. Lupus effects everyone different.
