Doctor Visit

Yesterday, I went to see the Lupus doctor. He gave me some patches for the horrible pain in the tops of my feet.

He continues to say, I have Lupus and I continue to say, I do not.

He did talk to me about our insurance problem. He said, he would continue to see me no matter what. I am so very grateful. The fibromyalgia can be so very hard to handle that sometimes just talking to him about this can be helpful.

So, I have some relief about the insurance stuff and I put a patch on my foot last night and have had no pain. It is an anti inflamatory patch.

Thank you God

It's not my usual style to talk about such things, but if it might help you...

I was drinking too much coffee. In addition to making my nose run like crazy, it caused a throbbing/stabbing pain on the top of my foot. It had never done those things before; but when I backed off, both troubles cleared.

My feet and ankles were swollen though. I cut out some salty food I had been overeating without thinking enough of it since I don't add salt to my food ever.

Horse Chestnut is good for leg veins, so I used a bottle of that.

Then, since I was sitting too much, I started exercising my hips, legs, and feet (toe raises), etc. That really helped.

Finally, optimum weight is good. I was too thin.

Hi there ...

I am hoping you can help me rally all the "lupus troops."

March 3, 2009 is the Lupus Foundation of America’s 11th Annual Advocacy Day on Capitol Hill. Even if you cannot physically join us on Tuesday, there are still several things you – and your family and friends – can do to help raise awareness about the seriousness of lupus.

To learn all the easy things you can do from the comfort of your home, please go to

To take it a step further, if you're willing to do so, I'd really appreciate it you would consider posting this information (what you find at the link to my blog) on your blog, and letting all your friends and family know how important this is to the lupus community.

If you have any questions, feel free to email me at

Thanks for your help.

All the best, Wick

Hi! I just joined, and wanted to say hang in there. I'm praying for you, and it will get better! I have had Multiple Sclerosis (MS) for over 20 years, and Lupus (SLE) for just over a year, along with extreme fatigue.

The numbness in my legs could be the MS, or Lupus, or ???? Lukewarm baths help, Naproxyn has helped the pain in my legs. It's kind of crazy to realize I have numb legs, but also have pain in them!!!! My Lupus doc has me taking Naproxyn, Plaquenil, and some herbs that seem to help a lot. I hope something I've said my help. I'll keep you in my prayers, I promise!

This prayer is from Jesus that we may here from Him, that He may meet our needs. It only consist of three simple steps.

1) We need to read one scripture. This will focus us in the word that brings everlasting life.

2) Since this prayer is from Jesus we need to direct our prayer to Him personally. Too often Christian focus they're prayer's to G_D the father. Scripture proclaims that Jesus should be the focus of our prayer.

3) The simplest part of this Prayer is to ask Jesus one question. Please, all that is required for this question is to make it simple. Let Jesus Himself finish the question when He gives you that understanding through prayer.


The scripture that is the focus of this prayer is "ACTS 2:38". It's not necessary to do any study into this scripture. Jesus Himself will bestow the understanding that will resonate in your heart.

The most important part of this prayer is that we need to direct our prayer directly to Jesus. If you normally would say Father in your prayer, change your focus from the Father to Christ Jesus by lifting Jesus name up every time you would normally use Father in your prayer.

Maybe the hardest part of this prayer is the question that we need to ask Jesus. For man as we are, always try to understand the question and may add many additional quires. The simplest question is all that is required.

Simply ask Jesus 'WHY'
