Words cannot describe how incredibly happy and thankful I am. I was diagnosed with lupus in 2011. Everything was okay. I showed no visible symptoms, just my fingers being swollen and achy. I thought I had it all under control. Fast forward to 2013, my lab works start showing large amounts of protein in my urine. I have a kidney biopsy done and the results were not great, but not horrible. I was a class II lupus nephritis (kidney inflammation caused by systemic lupus erythematosus). Because class II was not bad, the doctor decided to just have me take a baby dosage of Lisinopril to hopefully help the amount of protein spilling in my urine. A year goes by and the amount of protein in my urine worsens. I undergo another kidney biopsy and my class II lupus nephritis has worsened to a class IV. I receive news from my doctor that I have to undergo chemotherapy to stop the lupus from attacking my kidneys. I stopped work and school for 7 months. Last month, I had lost hope because my doctor had said it’s not working as she thought it would. I attended a healing mass on Thursday with Reverend Father Joseph Faller at Holy Family Church. I really believe he has healing powers. The power of the Holy Spirit was very powerful at the mass. Glad to say my lab works results came back and my doctor was so happy that the chemotherapy is finally doing what my she had hoped for and that it is showing improvement. Prayers really do work wonders.
how to disappear
Chemotherapy is really getting the best of me. Why do I have to be sick? Why is my immune system attacking good things I need in my body especially my kidneys? Why does my immune system have to be so weak, the faintest cough can get me sick? I’m just so tired of being in pain when I wake up, walk, sit-down. It’s not fair. I’m so young, yet I can’t live a normal life. I’m home all the time. At times, I don’t even feel like eating. I just want to be better.
good girls go to heaven
