Felt a little better after the steriods and of course the percocet today. Actually i felt really good. Which i needed to do so I could be productive. I finally got tons of laundry done,and spent some good money on groceries so i dont have to eat bread and anything meat related. ugh. this is hard.

if you don`t mind me asking, what all changes must you make since you have lupus? diet-wise & all.
i thought my grandma had lupus, but she eats bread & meats, so either she really doesn`t have it very bad, or i was misinformed. i hope you get to feeling better either way though honey ♥

Im not going to cut out bread entirely, but it can be very inflammatory so I was told cutting down on things such as bagels ect can really help when you have a flare up.

Also, the amino acids phenylalanine and tyrosine which are huge ingrediants in meat and dairy severely aggravate the disease according to my rhematologist.

So I asked about going vegan and he said it would be a really good thing for me to do, if i could. So im trying.

I am the vegan queen! :)

Can you have other types of amino acids? Do you have any type of co-ops locally? Because there's lots of options at co-ops with like, t hings like that and allergies. My friend has a stomach problem where she is allergic to wheat. I know it's nt the ame, but I know of lots of differents foods you can try.

I think so, my rhematologist wasn't exactly great with the info and i've kinda been going on what I can find out from other people.

there is a small health food/grocery store close to my house but its really small and doesnt carry much produce. I have no idea what to make for meals or how to really feed myself. Im kinda living off organic peanut butter and veggies.

is tofu good?

Tofu is not bad, really. It's good mixed with stir fry, get the firm kind and fry it up. I use it sometimes instead of eggs when I bake and I also have a vegan pudding mix and you have to mix it with tofu. It's a taste you do need to get used to .... seirously, though I have tons of options ... foodwise. Email me
