I was diagnosed with SLE at the age of 16 (I'm now 30). At first I walked around in a daze and didn't know what to do or think. After speaking with my Dr I decided I wouldn't go on the tablets and I would try and manage SLE myself. As I write this I'm still tablet free. Don't get me wrong I've been close to being put on them by my Dr a couple of times. I try and do as I want when I want. I have altered my diet over the years and take a couple of supplements and that's it. I go to the gym 4 times a week and even use the sunbeds.
My worst time of the year is fast approaching. Winter. This is where I struggle. Bronchitis and Pleurisy non stop not forgetting the tiredness and joint aches, mouth ulcers and dry eyes.
So that's me in a nutshell. Feel free to get in touch for a chat or a question for me.
Here's to us all (fingers crossed) to having a relative flare free winter period.
