I know for a fact my mom spreads herself too thin at times. She never wants to let anyone down or tell anyone NO, but in the end she ends up killing herself. One of the most important things Lupus Patients need to do is take care of themselves! You know your body more than anyone, so you need to....LISTEN TO IT! I know it's hard to do, but you need to learn to say NO when you really aren't feeling up to do things. If the people in your life can't understand that, then that's on them. You need to care of YOURSELF!
Here is a list of things every Lupus Patient needs to hear! And, in fact probably needs to hear over and over again! I think I may even print this one out and give it to my mom every time she takes on too much!
It's okay to say NO to things! Trust me!
