I may have lupus but lupus doesn't have me


Thursday Thoughts:

  • as always on Thursday Thoughts I link with Jennifer at Ramblings of a Suburban Mom and you should check her out.  She’s a super awesome mom to two boys and she reviews lots of subscription boxes
  • Thinking that having only ONE doctor appointment in a week is pretty awesome
  • I want to go to a women’s gym that has yoga for people with chronic illness and they have a salt water pool and a hot therapy pool that they have a small class for people with chronic illnesses – I have NO clue where my bathing suit is or if it will fit because of the weight I’ve lost
  • I’m thinking that I have Gastroparesis because the nausea has been constant for months and getting worse and the pain has been constant.  I can’t eat very much at all.
  • I have homework I have to do tomorrow on finding a new chiropractor and scheduling an appointment with the naturopath and see if that will help me in any way with my anemia, the lupus, the fibromyalgia and the constant nausea.
  • I also will be calling the Lupus Ontario again to see about a support group in Windsor. The closest is Chatham and I really can’t see me driving for 45 to 60 minutes alone and I doubt I could get a kidlet to drive me.
  • March is Autoimmune Awareness Month and I’m going to post as much information as I can on the autoimmune diseases that have affected me and the side effects of why I’m still home on sick leave.  I have three autoimmune diseases; Hashimotos Thyroid, LADA 1.5 which is Latent Autoimmune Diabetes in Adults and Lupus and throw in Fibromyalgia.  There are over 100 autoimmune diseases and once you have one you’re susceptible to getting more.
  • Jared Padalecki’s Always Keep Fighting campaign has launched a new campaign Love Yourself First and I of course will be getting a shirt.  My #AKF t-shirt is the softest shirt ever! I just realized the on the inside of the shirt it has “first edition” and that is really cool.  So keep fighting and love yourself because your story isn’t over yet!



So what are your Thursday Thoughts?

  • By the way, nausea can also be a symptom of Lupus or Fibro. Not that things weren’t complicated enough for you. Lol. I have nausea that is from one if them. Or sometimes my stomach feels “blah” but not quite nausea.

  • Thank you for visiting me at mini2z ... Journey with me and I hope to see you often xx
