mmcook posted:
Hello,
I go by Marlene, I live in central Illinois. I was diagnosed in 1990 with Discoid with systemic involvement. I am over weight, high blood pressure, hypothyroidism, hypoparathyroidism, insomnia, plus. I have been trying to lose weight because both knee's are bad. The left is bone on bone.
Because of my weight, they won't do surgery. I am very worried about having knee replacement with lupus.
Any tips ,info, ideas, advise would be very much appreciated.
I have found that above all else you have to get your deep sleep.
Thanks
