One of the many effects of lupus to me is that I have loss my muscle strength plus my fast reflexes. At the early stage of my lupus I cannot even open a bottle of mineral water. There was a time that I cannot even cut my chicken with a spoon and fork. It was really, really hard. For two or three years, I have to asked my family to open containers for me. I thought that was my fate already. But I should have known myself better. That I am not a quitter. I might fall and stumble but I would find a way to stand up again even if my joints are not cooperation. Today, I can safely say that I can deal with steel shelving . I can now run and sit and stand at a normal pace. It’s really a challenging situation but if you won’t give up and just keep on praying you will find the way to deal with it. Trust in God’s plan!
