A DX of MTCD or LUPUS is not a death sentence!! However, having said that, it is a Chronic Illness and will affect you in some way for the rest of your life (no reason it can't be a long and fun one)!

Getting the right medication is the first step. This may take a while and some of the meds are very scary, but they are RXed becase they can and do help. Ask questions, do research (current information only - nothing over 5 years old), and listen to your body!

Getting councelling for the emotional impact is imperative, talk to someone, a therapist, a Priest, Reverend or Rabbi, your best friend, us! You need to have someone help you in learning how to begin coping, a Therapist is of course the best, as they are trained to help.

Speak to your Dr about they can help with sleep patterns, pain and depression.

Ask your Dr about treatment options, Physical Therapy, Pain Management, Medicine and anything else you can think of that will help with your quality of life!

Just remember Questions provide you with Answers! There is no stupid question except the ones you didn't ask.

Let us know how we can help!

Welcome to the family - Love Stephanie
