H7N9 influenza vaccine clinical trials begin
NIH HAS NEW CLINICAL TRIALS UNDER WAY FOR NEW FLU VACCINES!!!
AUTOIMMUNE ILLNESSES, & CAN YOU have "Botox", "Restalyne" Or some of the other injections for lines around the "Mouth and Lips?"
QUESTION? ANY OF YOU WITH AUTOIMMUNE ILLNESSES, HAVE YOU EVER WENT AND HAD ANY TYPE OF FACE/LINE PROBLEMS DONE? LIKE GETTING A BOTOX INJECTION, OR SOME OF THE NEWER ITEMS THAT ARE DONE BY INJECTIONS? I KNEW ONCE I GOT MY DENTURES (DAMNED SJOGREN'S TAKING ALL OF MY TEETH) THAT I WOULD HAVE MORE OF A LINE ON EACH SIDE OF MY FACE AND ON THE TOP OF MY LIP...
BUT OF COURSE WITH AGE THEY ARE GOING TO BE THERE AND GET WORSE. SO, I HAVE READ BOTH "OKAY" AND "NOT OKAY" TO HAVE THESE TYPES OF PROCEDURES DONE IF YOU HAVE LUPUS ETC??? ANYONE HAD ANY EXPERIENCE, AND IF YOU DON'T WANT TO SAY ON MY MAIN PAGE JUST SEND ME A MESSAGE ON THE MESSENGER. I AM REALLY, REALLY BUMMED ABOUT HOW THEY ARE WITH THE DENTURE SITUATION, WHICH I HATE THEM ANYWAY, THAT IS ANOTHER ENTIRE STORY! BUT, I WOULD LOVE TO KNOW MORE FROM SOMEONE WHO HAS EITHER TRIED TO HAVE IT DONE, OR HAD IT DONE ETC!!!!! THANKS! RHIA

Young Women from 24 to 32 or so that really NEED HELP TO GET THEIR LIVES ON TRACT... AND wanting a 2nd chance & the difficult time they have. Me, lupus, RA, Sinus infections infections and Life!
Lupus Flares, Pain Pump refill, Young Women & getting another chance to change their lives, LIFE, and Chronic Illnesses with PAIN!
Everyone, it has been MORE THAN AN INSANE WEEK OR MORE FOR ME! Between my own doctors visits, and a friend had a new baby and there were issues, but all is well now, I had to go over to the next town in our county to renew my driver's license, since it's been 12 YEARS LOL since I had gone in and took a new photo etc, I had to physically go in this time to renew it. That took forever; although I must say the system now is better than it used to be. Then I had another friend with problems, and was trying to find some help for her, along with my own other stuff, cutting tree limbs, and I've got to get to the market today, but I have not had time to clean my house like it needs, and then I have to take a shower, and it's so pretty outside, I need about "5 of me cloned" so I can do 20 things at once!!!! I have not felt that great yet either. In fact, I have not started my RA meds yet, since being ill with the sinus infection. For some reason, I was running a fever, low grade, but still a fever Monday.
I went in for my pain pump to be refilled, and when they checked it, sure enough I had a low grade temp. I came home and checked it myself, and I was still running a bit of one. I didn't run any fever at all with the sinus infection. Plus, I have kind of "stopped" running a low grade temp with the Lupus. Used to I seemed to almost have a low grade one daily with the Lupus. It went back down and as far as I know has been back to normal the past couple of days. But, I was concerned so I still kept off the Actemra and the new Xeljanz, until I could see what the temp was all about. But, I've had a damned headache, and a bad one at times, for the entire week! IT could be "stress" or maybe I have a Lupus flare, that will give me a Lupus Migraine from hell at times.
So, yesterday I "almost" went BACK for a 4th time since the 1st part of January and had them give me a prednisone injection for the headache. But, I toughed it out yesterday, and it is not so bad so far this morning. So, it could be anything causing it. With everything going on, as I said I could be more "stressed" out than I think and it's causing the headache. Usually I don't have one that bad.
When they are bad enough I want to scream and cry, usually it's due to a Lupus flare, or I am sick with something. So, I am going to take the Actemra later this evening and then take my 1st Xeljanz tomorrow and see how things go. Please keep me and those couple of people in your prayers, with problems and the young woman with a new little baby girl. She needs lots of prayers, so she can get her life together, and get back on her feet. The very "odd" thing is, lately, I know of about 4 people, that have someone in their lives in the same situation. The nurse that comes to see me weekly from my insurance, is helping a young woman with kids, and her trying to get her "stuff" together, and the young woman I know. Then my daughter also knows a young woman going through about the same situation, and I have another friend that has a daughter who is really trying to get her life on tract, get a job, her own place to live, and put herself back on the right roads.0
These young women ALL need our prayers. It seems that many of them at about 25 years old, either get involved with the "wrong crowd", have a child or children, either the Dad is not there or does not help out, and they are desperately trying to dig their way into a 2nd chance. But, that is hard to do... it's hard to get any assistance these days, it takes so much time, paperwork, and red tape. Then of course we have some that have "abused" it, so that makes the ones that really WOULD benefit and try to do right unable to get the help they need. So, something about that age group, some between about 24 to even 32 or so, really lots of young women out there with the same problems... and NO PARENTS, that either will help, or are even around to help.... it sucks, and i AM SO PROUD THAT BOTH OF MY ADULT KIDS ARE IN A PRETTY GOOD SPOT, AND HAVE THEIR HEAD ON THEIR SHOULDERS RIGHT! :) For that I am BLESSED AND GRATEFUL FOR SURE!!!! Have a good weekend everyone!
