Hi all....just wondering how many have or do, include prayer in their list for treatment? I ask this because yesterday at work I was so overcome with pain that I had to excuse myself from my group (rarely do I turn my kids over but the pain was just too much this time and I needed a break). While trying to pull myself together in the lounge area, some woman whom I don't even know came over to me and asked if she could pray for me! Wanting to look in the mirror (did I look that bad? close to death?) anyways, she lay her hands on my shoulders and began praying which of course reduced me to tears. People at work know that I am sick (with lupus) and that I deal with a great deal of pain but I'm no martyr- I do a pretty good job going about my business- it takes a lot out of me and I usually have precious little left to give when I get home but....We often have outside agencies coming in for training and the like and this was the case yesterday, I won't see this woman again but-wow! My boss walked in and walked right back out again- I have a good relationship with him and went to talk with him after- he just kind of looked at me funny. I told him that it wasn't something that I asked for that she just came up and started praying over me- he said,"Did it work?" LOL! I'm not being disrespectful in any way, I'm not religious but I am very spiritual. I have asked and will continue to ask for strength to help me through this because quite frankly-this is really getting to be too much! I was an hour and a half in the MRI tube last evening- the tech wanted to know why I had tears in my eyes?!? My body feels like it was hit by a mack truck today because it took everything I had to hold still for that long (they had to repeat some of the images because I was spasming:( ) Just wanted to know if the prayer brings any peace to any of you...have a good weekendxoxoLyn

I'm trying to exercise daily. I was doing fairly well until I sprained my ankle 2 weeks ago but now I'm getting back on the horse. Today I walked over a mile with my arm weights that are about 22lbs total. I was out of shape and it was hard on my arms. I also did my 30 situps. I'm also going to drink a lot of water and try to eat healthy. I do tend to have a sweet tooth but I'm cutting...
