Lupus is way worse than my husband


I've been thoroughly uninspired to write anything lately. The husband is off ALL WEEK- not vacation, just the life sucking, painstaking schedule of a policeman- must be tough, right? Well, it is for me.

That's why I was so glad to get an e-mail from Manic Mom asking if I would pimp her blog today! I didn't hesitate for a second and am glad to oblige. You see, Sheila has Lupus and my asinine husband cramping my style, pales in comparison to the painful challenges that she faces just trying to get through a day! Sometimes it takes someone to slap me across the face and say "shut the hell up and just be thankful."


Thanks, Sheila, I needed that! She always manages to leave cheerfully optimistic comments, not letting on to her discomfort and struggles.
I have known 3 people with Lupus and they have each been amazingly loving, strong, resilient moms- with the greatest attitudes! They are a testament to courage and strength and positive thinking. All women that I could learn something from.

So PLEASE go visit Sheila and spread the word!

Tena,

That was very cool. Sometimes our inspiration is just under our nose. Sheila sounds like a great person. Lupus is no ticker tape parade. Most do not know that I have RA, which makes this Blog thing a real challenge most days. Thanks for sharing.
