I'm an avid fan of adult coloring to relieve stress and bring me peace, joy, and tranquility! I also love gardening, but only between the hours of 6:00 am and 10:00 am!
Symptoms started gradually appearing around 30 years ago.
I'm living in probably THE worst place for Lupus---a high mountain valley (6000 ft) semi-desert, super dry horribly hot and sunny climate. Moving, unfortunately, is not an option.
I'm married to my best friend and surrounded by loving in-laws. With the help of my sweet husband I've gradually become bilingual over the past ten years. I'm extremely proud of this considering all the brain fog and my advanced age! In Mexico anyone over the age of 60 is referred to as the "Third Age," or "La Tercera Edad" and they're entitled to a government issued Senior Discount Card, so now I have the old age card that gives me discounts on movies, some medicines and lab work, buses, museums, and many other things!
