Lover of Life, Woman of Faith, Thriver and Survivor, Mom, Daughter, Sister, Aunt, Friend and Widow, living with and managing Lupus!
After almost 10 years of marriage and 7 years of divorce my husband and I reconciled after he was diagnosed with brain cancer - he said with my lupus and his cancer it was a race to the grave and till death do us part. He beat me of course. I will die with Lupus not from it. I have 3 amazing kids and I have many goals and plans for the rest of my life after I get through the loss of my husband. I was married to a very abusive man for a year during our separation and I am dealing with the trauma of that as well. He was murdered before I could divorce him just a few months before Jeff I were able to be together (actually it was because of that, that Jeff and I could be together in peace and not fear for our lives) Anyway, I am dealing with a tremendous amount of stress over last 6 months, burying two husbands, and until this week haven't suffered any flares and I fear they are going to come on strong now that Jeff's memorial is this Sunday my body is saying OK - Stress is ending so I am going to kick your butt now. :(
God, Help Me!
