You may have multiple doctor visits and medications to coordinate, as well as new information to learn during each visit. However, living well with lupus means playing an active role in your care and treatment, and one of the best ways to do this is to ensure that every doctor’s appointment is as successful as possible. So what are some ways to ensure this?

Some of us will be faced with the need for surgery at some point in our lives. Surgery may present some particular challenges in people who have lupus, so proper preparation is important. Although we may not be able to adequately prepare for emergency surgeries, there are many things that can be done for elective surgeries, to increase the possibility of a safe outcome.

Thirty-One Faces of Hope: Viridiana Dudoit

“After 6 months of fighting all her new symptoms, the kidney doctor shed some light on things. There’s a strong possibility her kidneys are creating excess fluid, and this very well could be caused by her underlying Lupus. At last, a light in the darkness. We are still working to improve her health, one day at a time, one hope at a time. It’s a long road, and the end of our story isn’t written, but we face each day with hope, resolution and courage.” – Chad Gates, Viridiana’s husband

Forty year lupus warrior! Thank you LFA for all you do! 💜🦋💜
I wish you were able to make it yesterday. I know you couldn’t send anyone to our event due to Covid maybe next year!? Amos Smith does an amazing job putting this together by himself every year. Last year you did an awesome acknowledgement of him on the “31 Faces of hope”
Hey u I ka ty
I am just seeing this group and I was wondering if there is something close to me . I am looking for something in Birmingham , Al !! 💜💜💜
Will the virtual town hall info event be Interpreted for Deaf and Hard of Hearing Community? —- I’m offering my services Pro Bono as a Sign Language Interpreter. Fully available.
Thank you so much for honoring my mother Myrna Evans and for the beautiful plant that was sent to the funeral home in memory of her. She loved her Lupus support group and the Lupus Foundation very much. 💜
All Are Invited Masks will be available.
How do we get massage therapy to be covered by Medicare and our health insurance? I know from experience that massage therapy really helps people like us with Lupus and Fibromyalgia. I have had Lupus since I was 10 years old. I am 51 now. I use to have a massage therapist come to my house every other week. She only charged me $35 for a hour massage plus I tipped her. Massage Therapy helped me tremendously. When the economy drop several years ago, I couldn't afford the treatments. I really could tell the difference in my muscles and joints. They became tight and sore. Because massage therapy is so expensive now, I can't even get treatments unless it is a Christmas gift or Birthday gift. I have been going to physical therapy and Chiropractic therapy, but they do not come close to helping like Massage Therapy does. Chiropractic therapy is ok , the insurance company will not pay for anything that is related to massage even though the Chiropractic recommended the treatment and the massage equipment is part of his patients treatment. Why is Massage Therapy not part of medical Insurance? It helps people physically and mentally. It could help cut down on antidepressant drugs as well as muscle relaxers, and pain medications. Just food for thought!
This is lupus. Not all rashes have the butterfly effect. Some hit the joints. This is mine today Painful burning rash , nothing heals it but time. Lupus effects my lungs and joints. I am a lupus warrior and this does not define me nor stop me. I have learned to deal with pain and the occasional rash. But please understand this is not a typical RASH. Lupus rashes are painful and last longer. Toes and fingers are swollen , they look like little sausage’s but again , this does not stop me
