Y’all I can not get over how drastically my life has changed in just a short 2 years- mostly in the last year. I don’t even look like the same person. Pictures are before- when symptoms first started- and after my diagnosis.
Everyday I wake up knowing there is no cure... no end date.... no light at the end of the tunnel. I’m not taking medication to treat the disease or make my symptoms go away- I’m taking it to lessen the symptoms, but they are still there. I gain weight every week- I’m weak- I’m pale because I can’t go in the sun- I’m tired, I’m so so tired- I’m itchy- my toes hurt when I wear socks or shoes... etc etc etc.
It’s been an adjustment... I’m lucky I have an amazing supportive and loving husband who has delt with my tears and picking up the slack. He’s the best and I don’t deserve him. Long story short: lupus sucks. I’m tring to cope, adjust, and accept but its challenging. #thankfulforjeffrey #lostwithoutyou #lupussucks
