I have noticed that on House also. I think though because Charlene has MS I notice things like that more also. That is crazy about the show! It amazes me that not one celebrity comes out about it. You should write a story about it! Well of course a different story from the one I just read above :)

I'm in your corner! I was diagnosed with Lupus about 10 years ago. Forget raising general public awareness.... I have difficulty getting my own family to understand my limitations. At first they seemed to be understanding but that soon melted away. I guess if you have all your limbs and can get out of bed in the morning they think all is well.

It's a chronic disease that wears you down at times. My young neighbor was diagnosed and was really having a difficult time accepting her new "normal". There is no normal. You get up in the morning and decide what you can do for that day. You can't push yourself and if you do you'll pay the piper. Although I don't think she understood my advice I told her to make friends with her disease and to respect it's boundaries.

I haven't found any medication that helps. The side effects are nasty. A celebrity spokesperson might help but Lupus is hard to put a face on since it can manifest itself in so many different ways.

Raising awareness is a good thing. I just don't know how to go about it.

So much to address, So little space.Rest assured, we in the Frozen Wasteland to the North are always here for you, if or when you need any support or assistance with your Lupus affliction, that's what Family is all about. That said, it's impossible for me to take 'Dr. House' seriously, maybe we can start a write in campaign to get some new writers for the show. Now, how did it come to pass that you AND your hubby have a fascination with ruthless, reckless law enforcement officers? Humm, Uncle Ben and Uncle Chris just have to come to mind, Grandma Mary says; there I go again, stirrin' th'.....
