A lupus blog…

“The most beautiful makeup for a woman is passion. But cosmetics are easier to buy.”

Last Wednesday the Twitter page for WegoHealth said it was Mental Health Blog Party Day! I sat down to write a blog discussing mental health, and I had a bad case of the “It was a dark and stormy nights.”  I felt like Snoopy.  Lots of ideas, yet I couldn’t transcribe them from my brain to paper keyboard.  Low and behold, I gave … Continue reading

Put On Purple! Tell the story. Change lives.

It’s Put On Purple Day for Lupus Awareness! I spent most of the day in bed, as this increased dose of the Arava is kickin my ass. Literally. Girlfriend has the runs. TMI for ya? Sorry. Subtle and ladylike I am not.  The jig is up. Moving right along, I managed to get out of bed, get showered and head … Continue reading

“I whip my hair back and forth…”

I love changing my look, and I switch hair colors more often than Ashlee Simpson. I cut it short, let it grow, add clip-in extensions, and it’s been every color under the sun.  Hubby always says it’s like a new wife walks in the door when I come home from the salon. Over the winter, I dyed my hair much … Continue reading

We got the Lup!

HAPPY WORLD LUPUS DAY!!!!!! As a sit down in front of my laptop, I’m actually at a loss of what to write about.  Being that today I had one of those Lupus days where I was a waste of space and laid in bed all day due to pain and fatigue, I’m not feeling particularly peppy. This is my World … Continue reading

Happy Nurses Week!!!!!!!

Back in August of 1999, at the ripe age of 18 years and one week, I moved into my freshman dorm at college.  Aside from the excitement of being out of my parents house, shedding my high school skin, and cute boys in the suite attached to the one I was in, I was actually looking forward to starting classes … Continue reading

G-L-A-M-O-R-O-U-S

In my new found quest for health, not only have I become conscious of what I put into my body (ie, no more Taco Bell) but I’ve also started to take note of what I put on my body.  As I’ve mentioned over and over, I’m a self-proclaimed girly-girl.  Sephora and the MAC counter are my own personal brands of … Continue reading

Slowing down for Lupus Awareness Month

HAPPY LUPUS AWARENESS MONTH! HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO MY BEAUTIFUL SISTER BRIE!!! Back in February when my rheumatologist suggested totally bitched me out that it was time to start making some lifestyle changes, it took my hardheaded self a lot of time to get used to the idea.  I’m always on the go, bouncing around from one place to the next.  Once my … Continue reading

“You’re so vain. You probably think this song is about you.”

Note:  I wrote this around 2:30am Thursday night/Friday morning at my Insomnia-Pity-Party-for-One.  I wasn’t going to post it, but I figure, what the hell.  I’m sure someone can relate. Prednisone.  Anyone that has ever been on it for any reason says the same thing.  “We have a love-hate relationship.”  It’s true.  I’m  currently on a fairly hefty dose, but to … Continue reading

“Leaving on a jet plane…”

I’ve completely fallen of the blogging bandwagon.  It’s been a rough week and a half, and even though I knew it would be good to get my frustrations out, I just couldn’t muster up the energy to sit and write. As we speak (er… write) I’m on a plane on my way to San Francisco for a much overdue 4 … Continue reading

You have to respect the Lupus!

In the grand scheme of things, getting the diagnosis of systemic lupus was relatively easy.  Those 5-6 months of weird symptoms and endless tests and doctors were indeed a nightmare, but I’ve read there are so many living like this for years before getting a diagnosis.  Years.  I can’t even wrap my brain around that.  I spent much of those … Continue reading
