Pamper yourself

Over recent months I have used this space to talk about my feelings and the things that mr lupus has thrown my way. I have learnt alot about myself and life in general in the process and have discovered that there are ways to manage and deal with all encounters with mr lupus so I have decided rather than just use this space as a place to talk about the condition to also use it as a place to identify, create and share resources to help make this journey through life a more enjoyable one.

Pampering is, I believe, an important part of the process and I intend to identify, create and share useful resources to help make the journey a more manageable and enjoyable one.

If you have come across tools or resources that have made your life with lupus easier or know of things that can help please share that with me so that I can share it with others.

About Carole

I am a fun loving woman of a certain age who believes that living with lupus is more than just about symptoms, medications and treatment. Laughter and a positive mental attitude are the essential nutrients in my daily diet and I just want to share a word or two to contribute to yours. And I am a certified Laughter Leader!

    I have been reading your blog for quite some time, but have never commented, but felt the need to share this lovely bit of information. I have found when the joints are just generally not right, use some eucalyptus. Here in the States we have eucalyptus bath oil, body gel, lotion, massage oil (the best!) and even Shampoo. It brings the swelling down, makes you feel like a weight has been lifted and (if you use enough) gives you a really good nights sleep.

  2. You are one of the tools in my arsenal. I try to find the humor in everything so I’ll laugh and not cry. Sometimes my doctor and I are rolling by the end of the appointment. It just makes facing life so much easier.

    A TENS machine for the really achy days does wonders. So does a long soak in the bath!

    Thanks for the suggestion. I had to get rid of the bath as getting stuck in it stopped being fun!!
