Log in to Reply NicoleK 5/10/2016 - 12:07 pm Wow, that’s quite a lot to deal with. How do you get through it? Log in to Reply Hazy Day Sunflower 5/10/2016 - 12:14 pm Well I am on a suicide site. So it appears not well. Log in to Reply NicoleK 5/10/2016 - 12:17 pm Well, I mean, yea, I get that. I am here too. But you’re still going, that means you make it through somehow. Sorry if that was a stupid question. Log in to Reply Hazy Day Sunflower 5/10/2016 - 12:55 pm I’m just being a smart ass today. I control it with diet for the diabetes but I have been insulin dependent in the past. The hashimotos I take synthroid or since my thyroid no longer functions. As for the psoriasis since I’m in remission I don’t need to do anything but when I get flair ups there really isn’t any pain medication that helps. Nothing really helps. I just keep moving forward. Sorry you have lupis. Lupus is a real *****. Hashimotos is an autoimmune disease. Basically mh body went to war with my thyroid and the thyroid lost. I often think what if it went to war and my throat won? Would I turn into a giant throid? Lol. It would make for an awesome graphic novel.
