Girl, van I relate to this one too. I didn't catch how long ago you were diagnosed with lupus, but I've had it since I was 11, so it has been 15 years. I have always been a very active, strong-willed person, so even as a child I hated asking for help and would constantly push myself beyond my limits. I think because I was so young when I was diagnosed, it took me much longer than some others to learn that my pride was not worth more than my health.

In the past two and a half years I have had two surgeries on my left foot, two surgeries on my right foot, and two surgeries on my right leg. All of which left me either on crutches or in a surgical boot for a minimum of 8 weeks each. I spent lot of time in bed, and a lot of time getting yelled at by my family for trying to do too much on my own. :-) I did however discover lots of TV shows that I previously had never watched! Lol

It is always difficult for us to ask for help. In a world full of so many lazy people who want to be waited on hand and foot, we wake up every morning lots of times just hoping and praying to get through our day.

Lola, thank you for being strong enough to ask for help, and for reminding me and everyone that we are not weak for reaching out for help.

I'm not sure what it all entails, but I'm willing to help you out with whatever you need help with if I can. Contact me and let me know what I would be doing.
