I am still crazy about my husband after almost 20 years together :) He is my best friend and soul mate--what can be better than that?? Our ragdoll cat thinks that she is our baby and is very spoiled.

I have been diagnosed with CNS lupus for about 15 years and in 2000 I had a stroke (I was 35!) I am on lots of pretty strong meds to deal with the lupus-steroids, 3-4 chemo meds (mostly oral tablets but one is an injection that my hubby has to give me twice a week) I hate these meds (they give me a moon face and I no longer recognize my OWN face) but they do keep me alive so I continue to take them.

I have a wonderful team of doctors (finally), a truly gem of a husband (who loves me NO matter what), good friends, and my faith which keeps me going-without these things--I don't know how I would have survived one day!
