After fifty years, the hope has been renewed. After fifty years of no known drugs for LUPUS, a very exciting news started circulating around the internet last July 20. A day when I was so depressed because I have to cut my hair short and have to endure the malar rash in my face. Yes, indeed there is hope that a cure for lupus has been successful.
Frugal living. I have been reading a lot about this. I have been seeing a lot of articles that were written that give tips on how to live frugally especially this time of economic recession. You would be surprised at how creative and imaginative people are and the thousands of ideas they can come up with. Some tips I am already doing not because of the economic meltdown but also I wanted to protect our earnings. I wanted to make sure that we have enough savings for the rainy day.
There was an article that I was able to read. It’s an article that I stumble in the internet but I can’t remember what it’s url. But the content of which stays with me because I am somewhat doubtful of what was written. In the article, the writer wrote that LUPUS patients should not eat egg. Which really did surprised me. Because I am eating eggs and there is nothing wrong with it. According to the article, since LUPUS is a disease of the immune system, those who are suffering of it should not take anything that would boost the immune system.
I started getting interested with Spices when we moved in to our new house and my husband bought me an oven. I always love to try my hands in baking because when I was a child I always help out my mother in the kitchen and she is a good cook! She is my inspiration in cooking and baking. So, to begin with my quest I bought lot of cooking books and magazine and then got hold of every free recipe that come my way. It was really fun!
I had my check up today. I feel a bit different because it was my first time to go to Dr. I’s clinic without the little girl. It’s been a while since I went out without Anevay. Even Dr. asked me where my ‘baggage’ is. haha. So, as expected my lupus is active. But it is not affecting any organs which is good. What is quite certain though was that my lupus is attacking my skin. The hair loss, the dandruff, the rashes and even the rough spots at my back. Dr. I scolded me about not applying sun block. I don’t know but really I am the type of person who does not apply lotion religiously. lol.
