Being a Mom with Lupus

Being a mom is wonderful, fulfilling, and if you're a mom then you also know that it's tiring for the average mom nevermind a mom with Lupus.  Each day, I have to take breaks to make sure I rest enough to be able to keep up with everything that needs to be done.  My joints hurt, and I have the typical Lupus pains. However the hardest thing for me is worrying about the future. I want to be here for my son forever if I can!  I do my best not to dwell on it, but being a mom with Lupus is a challenge and I just wanted to let you know that if you're a mom with Lupus out there reading this right now, I can relate to you.  I get it.  Please reach out to me if you need someone to talk to. Together we can live with lupus and thrive! :) 
Here's a blog post on the topic that I think is excellent...
and this one is great too!

  1. Thanks for your posts Nikki. The more I read the more I am convinced you are my double (I think exactly the way you do about being positive about my condition and about being a mom with lupus). It's so refreshing to see someone else being positive. I can also relate about how tiring it is to be a mom with lupus and how we worry about the future and we hope to be there for our sons as they get married, have babies, etc.
