Hi all,

This article was linked to my weekly Scleroderma E-letter. I found it to have an interesting slant to it and worth a read. It is not too long.

Whenever I see a woman with an autoimmune disease in my office, one of the first things I ask her is how she's handling the stress in her life, and if she's finding time to rest.
That's because I know—and research shows—that stress can bring on a flare in diseases such as multiple sclerosis, rheumatoid arthritis, lupus and psoriasis. One study found, for instance, that the daily stress of everyday living affects how women with lupus feel more than major life stresses like moving or starting a new job.19 I also know that fatigue is a major component of many of these diseases.

It's a really nice article as it is a really good simple summary of how we need to deal with stress and how to look at life with a chronic disease.

Hi Karen,

The article offers very good advice. The hard part is following through. Joan has a good idea of posting it somewhere prominent as a reminder. The refrigerator might be more appropriate for me :lol:.

Take care,
Lazylegs
