Jobs with Chronic Illness

Im a freshman at college this year. A vocal music education major. And as of right now(on week 4) everything seems to be fine but im worried that the physical strain may be too taxing and due to the nature of music majors I wont have taken many credits that actually mean anything by the time i realize. Are there any teachers that can give me advice? Is it worth it to be an educator with chronic pain? Should i focus my energy on something of a slower speed? #Lupus #LupusNephritis #Arthritis

Lupus life struggles, I need some advice please!

I was finally diagnosed with Lupus Nephritis last year after many hurdles and struggles so I am FINALLY on the medications I need to help my kidneys improve, including prednisone but now I'm dealing with some side effects from prednisone that I find difficult to manage. if anyone has any suggestions at all for the problems below, I'd really appreciate any help at all!!!

I love to do my make up and hair but my skin has become very greasy and sensitive so I struggle to use foundation of any kind and it never lasts!

My hair is very hard to manage due to being extremely greasy no matter how much I wash it or the products I use. I'm also missing all the hair on the top of my head.

I usually like to dress nice when I have the energy, but I have severe weight fluctuations and swelling, I don't always have the resources to go buy new clothes with every change. #Lupus #LupusNephritis #ChronicIllness #lupuslife #prednisonesideeffects #medicationsideeffects #chronicillnesslife #weightgain #physicalchange #adviseplease #adviseme #Advice

Lupus messed with the wrong witch”

Hi all! This is probably the group I didn’t know I needed! I am a 1st degree Gardnerian. I had been practicing Wicca on and off my whole life when I joined a coven. A couple of years after I was initiated I was diagnosed with SLE and lupus nephritis. My coven, actually, my high priestess, wouldn’t believe I was that sick. I had to miss meetings and rituals due to my treatment, and then Covid came, and I felt like I wasn’t a part of the coven anymore. So, here I am, with a chronic illness and on my own again. I think this group might be helpful to me in light of all that I have been through, and I appreciate your allowing me to join. Blessed be!

This is what being diagnosed with active Lupus Nephritis looks like. #Lupus #LupusNephritis #MixedConnectiveTissueDiseaseMCTD

Been in the hospital since September 7th. Was found by my mom having a seizure in my bedroom floor. I had 2 strokes, one on each side of my brain. Have been diagnosed with active Lupus Nephritis at this time and am being treated for it. I knew I'd been dealing with something underlying for quite awhile now just didn't know what until this happened. As much as I wish it didn't I'm kind of glad it did because I feel like I'd not know otherwise. I'm grateful my mom just so happened to be at my house at the time of the strokes otherwise I don't know if I'd be here right now.

Taking It One Day At A Time #chronicillnesswarrior

Today my battle has gotten more difficult. However I am a fighter and I am strong. I will face my trials with hope and bravery. With God by my side; I will not fail. I am blessed to be alive and breathing. No matter the circumstances- I am grateful. I am a fighter; I can and I will. I thank God for this life He has given me. My path may be more difficult than others, however I am a child of the mist high God. I am an overcomer! #Overcomer #childofgod #SystemicLupusErythematosus #LupusNephritis #ChronicIllness #InvisibleIllness #Lupus #AutoimmuneDisease #Chronicpainwarrior ##lupusawareness #chronicillnessawareness #nevergiveuphope #jesusismyrock ##mylupielife1987 #infiniteangel161 #miss8understood #icanandiwill #OPTIMIST #idealist #lonerwolf #lioness
