Learning to Live...

Learning to live with lupus is something I have been trying to figure out for going on 4years now. Its hard giving up that need for independence. I am a stubborn a**. Anyone who knows me knows that one fact to be true. I hope I can grasp the idea of not being able to do everything my mind tells me I can before it drives me into an early grave. I know that I am going to have to move closer to Pooh, I am thinking Birmingham would be alright. I need to be able to just go see her and not think about the 6hour car ride. Rabbit and Pooh are going to get to see each other now matter what price my body has to pay, I knew that when I made all the decision I made. They get to be sisters!
In other news we might be moving to Millbrook. My step-father lost his job some months ago and they haven't been able to find anything that will support them. My mother has asked that me and DB to move in and help out. My mother has done alot for me and had also given me whatever I have asked for whenever I needed (usually). As my family goes we tend not to turn our backs on each other, we may have our own ideas as to what is best for everyone but we are usually there. There are more opportunities for the types of job that I can work in Montgomery than most anywhere else in Alabama.


  1. 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 http://lfa-inc.blogspot.com/2009/02/even-if-you-cannot-be-in-dc-for-lfas.html

    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 davis@lupus.org.

    Thanks for your help.

    All the best, Wick
