C IS FOR CARING
I have given C some thought…could have talked about COUNSELLING which many people need to help them come to terms with having a CHRONIC disease, I could have talked about COUNSELLING because some people with lupus have Central Nervous System (CNS) involvement and suffer from severe depression because of this, I could have discussed CONSULTANTS who are essential in helping manage the condition but I am going to mention CARING because one thing a person with lupus needs is for people to care and understand. In order to do this we need to make sure our friends and families are informed, and when appropriate also employers and educators.
I am lucky enough to have an excellent consultant who once explained to some student doctors who were sitting in on my appointment, that he treated his lupus patients with kid gloves because on top of the medication they needed a lot of TLC!
