Even when you do every thing right... sometimes things still go wrong.
I take my medications religiously, every day at 7am and 7pm. I began to eat a gluten free diet 3 weeks ago. I started walking and exercising more. I began attending church, Bible Study, and journaling more.
Today, I woke up and I couldn't stand on my own two feet- literally.
It started two days ago. Two days ago I noticed that my left foot was hurting, the same left foot that had plantar fasciitis back in 2019. The same left foot that lead the doctors to discover that I had lupus.
But my only thought was that my shoe inserts were wearing out and I needed to get new ones.
I didn't think that two days later I would be lying on the ground, crying from the pain that radiated up my legs.
Illnesses know no age or gender.
So here I am, once more, using a walker to get around at the old age of 26.
Is anyone else sick and tired of being sick and tired?
How many more times will I have to peel myself off the floor? Fall down 7 times... stand up 8. #SystemicLupus #ChronicIllness #Bipolar1Disorder #Lupus #SLE
