Roxanne shared her story with me and I wanted to share it with you. ;) 


"I have Lupus(SLE), Antiphospholipid Antibody Syndrome, Fibromyalgia and Arthritis along with Endometriosis and MTHFR disease. I was dx with Lupus, Antiphospholipid Antibody Syndrome and MTHFR in Jan 09 but I have had my Lupus symptoms yrs before that. I was dx with Fibromyalgia March of this year. I have been in a flare up over a year now. I'm not on any meds for my Lupus but I am for my Fibromyalgia. I just take oxycontin and percocets for all the pain and for my Endometriosis pain. It's been very hard on me and my husband. It's SO hard to get thru everyday and my depression has worsen. My twin sister also has Lupus Antiphospholipid Antibody Syndrome and Fibromyalgia."


Roxanne please go into more details if you want :)

No way.  Chemo is not what's up.  But if it'll help you and there are no other good options then go for it!!  We just want you healthy and safe!
