Don’t keep viewing how you treat your Lupus as an issue. It is what is keeping you alive to fight another day. Yes the medicines can cause other issues, but had it not been for some of the medicines you would be in more pain and possibly dead. It is unfortunate that you have lupus, it is unfortunate that you must take medications to control the flares, but it is fortunate that you are in the land of the living. You can’t live well past lupus if you are constantly angry about your treatments and having lupus. Change your mindset as you fight, it really makes a difference.
