Some of the side effects from my medications cause a lot of problems with my stomach off and on. I’ve said something to my doctor in the past about the stomach pain, but he said if I don’t take the medication for the lupus I’ll end up with flares with the lupus, which means more prednisone. So I’ve learned to deal with the aches in my stomach. When you’ve been sick for over a decade your always looking for some relief from pain.
I didn’t know about digestive enzymes until I was offered a bottle to try. I was very hesitant to try them so I did call my doctor about medication interaction and he told me to go ahead and try them just take them far enough away from certain medications as a precaution, but he gave me the green light. I’ve taken the capsules for bloating since Monday. I took one No-Boat capsule the first day then took two a day. I have to say I’m not as bloated as I was before. It has really helped me with the stomach pain everyday especially after taking my medications or eating too much fast food, since the last thing I want to do is cook anything when I’m in pain day after day.
An important part of being a woman is taking care of you. Eating healthy food, exercising regularly, and getting enough rest everyday is very important. Sometimes it can be easier said than done, but we have to try to be good to our bodies. Eating a healthy diet with plenty of fruit, vegetables, and protein will help your body function and make you feel good. But sometimes our bodies don’t absorb enough from our food so we will need to buy womens health supplements. The supplement can help make up the difference between what your body has and what it needs to function. Supplements like vitamin D and calcium can help build strong bones, muscles, and nerves. Your doctor can do blood work to check if you’re lacking in any vitamins or minerals. Once you’ve learned what your body needs you’ll be able to buy the supplements. It’s important to find out how much of each supplement you should take daily. Some may require multiple doses a day while others would require a weekly dose. Putting your medications in a pill holder with the days of the week will help you remember when to take your pills and if you took them. Being good to your body is an important part of feeling good.
The first step to prevent breast cancer is doing your monthly self breast exam and going to your doctor for yearly breast exams. You should get your yearly mammogram early if you have a family history of breast cancer like me. I had to start early because my mom had breast cancer in her 30′s. I just had a breast biopsy which I’m recovering from now.
Finding ways to cut corner for the holidays isn’t easy when you’re dealing with a chronic illness that takes its toll on your health. I like to find online auctions and sales to save money. Deal Dash is an online auction site that allows you to purchase an item after you purchase the bids. Another words you buy bids to bid on the auctions. If you win the DealDash auction you pay to bid, if not they refund your bids to you. You can try DealDash risk free so you don’t need to worry about losing any money. They have items like a Laptop bag, an iPad, Keruig coffee makers and more. Several items high priced items ended fewer than ten dollars while I was watching the active auctions. It’s free to create an account and you can bid for multiple bids in a bid pack auction after being a bidder. The auctions are live so you’re able to watch the bids go up so you add your bid for the item. Once you’ve purchased you bids you can bid on the auctions except the ones not for new bidders. I am going to check out a few of the auctions before Christmas.
I’ve not done the chronic blogger of the week in a long while. I really need to get back to it so I’m picking the Chronic Blogger of the Week today. I’m working on an editorial calendar so I can keep track of the blog posts for my blogs. It’s been difficult since the deaths in my family. I’ve lost three Grandparents, an uncle and an aunt in the last twelve months. It has been pretty difficult for me. I went to my lupus doctor last week so I’m waiting on test results. He order a anti-inflammatory cream for my hip. I’ve had two or three injections in the last year in it and I’m not ready for a third one after the meningitis crisis thanks to an unsanitary pharmacy. All along I thought they were monitored by the FDA, which was far from true. Pretty scary. The one responsible for the meningitis deaths and illnesses has a dump behind it.

Hi Lupie Readers,
The Lupus Foundation of America released a question & answer post with Dr. Dafna Gladman entitled “15 Questions with Dr. Dafna Gladman – Musculoskeletal Issues and Lupus” It is an informative article about our muscles and skeletal related to lupus. I found the fact they don’t know why lupus attacks the muscles. The fact that they’ve done so much research on lupus, but don’t know why it attacks certain areas amazed me. So much is not known about a condition that causes so much turmoil in our life shows just how much research needs to be done to improve the quality of life of people with lupus.
Are you looking a way to reduce your chronic pain? When most of us think of pain relief they think of pain pills or creams, not a few ounces of a tasty drink. Nopalea is a wellness drink that is made from the fruit of a cactus. It’s an anti-inflammatory wellness drink that has been seen to help with conditions that affect your body. It works by reducing inflammation throughout your body. It doesn’t have the side effects of NSAID’s you pick up frm the pharmacy or grocery store. The company is offering a free thirty-two ounce bottle of Nopalea if you pay the shipping and handling so you can try the product before purchasing it. Yes, you will pay the shipping, but most of us throwaway ten dollars on junk. Just today I spent ten bucks on ice cream, which has very little nutritional value, except a little vitamin D. Just a few ounces of nopalea a day have been seen to reduce the inflammation naturally. You will need to drink three to six ounce a day for the first thirty days then reduce it to one to three ounces depending on your bodies needs. The wellness drink tastes delicious, but doesn’t contain any sugar or artificial sweetener. Nopal cactus has been used by natives for centuries. It contains strong antioxidants that help detoxify the body and reduce inflammation. It can be ordered by calling 1800-280-8518. They are challenging people to try it for thirty days. Along with the bottle of Nopalea you’ll receive a pamphlet The Secret Killer Health Alert. Pamphlets abut the affects of inflammation inside your body. The only way to find out if Nopalea helps you is paying the shipping and handling to receive the drink of wellness to try at home. It’s that simple.
I have been struggling with the ups and down of life. I have been dealing with issues with my hip for the last year. I’ve had two steroid shots in the last year and I think I need a third one, but I hate the idea of having another shot in it, but I may have no choice. It hurts even with my pain medication. I have a vitamin d deffiency so I’m worried about the side effects.
Has anyone had a shot in their hip? What are the pros and cons?
I’m always looking for a way to save money on things I buy both online and offline. Online shopping is my first choice because of the lupus and fibromyalgia. I try to save my energy for my family, but some things I prefer to purchase buy at brick and mortar stores. When I do online shopping I look all over for coupon or promo codes. Sometimes I have good luck other times I sit back and wait for the next sale or promo code to appear. At times I visit the Geek Store to find the greatest deal. Finding a great deal is especially important when I want to buy clothing or shoes. Sometimes I will find a Nordstrom coupon for a new item online. After being offline due to losing my back up on my computer I have been researching online backup. Right now I’m checking into the Carbonite offer code 2012 for back up.
