I have something IMPORTANT to say! After having surgery in September of 2007, my new doctor told me some bad news. He said that I have lupus. Lupus is a chronic autoimmune disease. Clinically, it can affect multiple organ systems including the heart, skin, joints, kidneys and nervous system. There are several types of lupus; generally when the word 'lupus' alone is used, it refers to the systemic lupus erythematosus. That's what I have Systemic Lupus Erythematosus.
Systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE or lupus) is a chronic autoimmune disease that can be fatal, though with recent medical advances, fatalities are becoming increasingly rare. As with other autoimmune diseases, the immune systemattacks the body’s cells and tissue, resulting in inflammation and tissue damage. SLE can affect any part of the body, but most often harms the heart, joints, skin, lungs, blood vessels, liver, kidneys and nervous system. The course of the disease is unpredictable, with periods of illness (called flares) alternating with remission. Lupus can occur at any age, and is most common in women, particularly of non-European descent.1 Lupus is treatable symptomatically, mainly with corticosteroids and immunosuppressants, though there is currently no cure. Survival in patients with SLE in the United States, Canada and Europe is approximately 95 at 5 years, 90 at 10 years, and 78 at 20 years.
I know it's kinda sad right? I found out that it's a disease on my father's side. My grandma has it, and right now one of my cousins seems to be having symptoms of lupus but she's alot older then me. I think i'm the youngest person in my family to get it so far.
I also have Rheumatoid arthritis it is a chronic disease, mainly characterized by inflammation of the lining, or synovium, of the joints. It can lead to long-term joint damage, resulting in chronic pain, loss of function and disability.
Then to add to my list of disfuntions I've got Raynaud's disease it is a vascular disorder that affects blood flow to the extremities which include the fingers, toes, nose and ears when exposed to temperature changes or stress. I think of it as a " bonus" from my lupus because lupus is a common cause of Secondary Raynaud's.
I take my meds everyday! No I'm not crazy! -looks back and forth- But just pray for me and my family...if you have a religion, that is. But that's it as far as I know. My mom said that I should've been of the show House!! lol!! They gave me the "million dollar" treatment while I was in the hospital and didn't find anything! But I have a new doctor and he found out what's wrong with me. So a SHOUT OUT to my doctor: Dr. Zader!! Like Dark Vader? Yeah, lol, I know!
4/2/2010-- Wow, I truely can't remember the last time I was even on here!! But, I can say that my health is still up & down, but its not as bad as before...But I'd still like you guys to pray for me. It seems as though I'll never get a break!! my brother has recently been convicted of murder charges, he IS innocent. Ugh, and no. I'm NOT just saying that because he's my older brother. But yeah, he gets sentenced on my birthday too! =,( My birthday will OFFICIALLY be the worst day for the rest of my life...he's supposed to serve 25 to life in prison...Yeah, so all prayers are welcome. Thanks.
9/19/2011-- Yeah, just doing a little bit of updating on here. Everything is...alright. My brother's situation is still pretty bad, but we're going for an appeal. So hopefully (fingers crossed) everything will be ok. My health could be a little better. My meds are being switched up a bit, so now my weight is fluctuating...Not that I had alot of weight to begin with -_-' Anywho, please continue to pray for me and my family. Thanks.
9/26/2011--Last week a boy from my city commited suicide because of bullying. His name is Jamey. I'm pretty sure you've heard of him by now. Even "Mother Monster" (Lady Gaga) has spoken out against bullying because of this. PLEASE stop the bullying. Even "flames" on here, I would consider a form of bullying. You DO NOT have the right to make another person feel as though they are insignifcant in any way. We are ALL human. Breathe the SAME air. Share the SAME planet. Bullying IS NOT OK.
Yes I'm Black if you were wondering. So far, I've only seen a few profiles on here, and they said that that were Black also. So if you are Black/Native American please tell me! I've been feeling alone on here! Oh, and thank you to the people who've told me. Love you lots! Lol. I'm also Native American...I just wanna know where my part of the casino profits are...? LMAO
Do you love DBZ? If so, you really need to check out these vids on Youtube. (hehe, I sound like an advertiser) Type in "TeamFourStar" in the search bar. They make this side-splitting parody videos! The first episodes aren't super funny, but the rest are hilarious! You really have to watch them! "God dammit, Nappa!" If you watch the vids, I'll be glad to discuss them with you on here! =)
I'm thinking about changing my name on here. I made this when I was what, 14? But I've been on here for so long, I'd hate to change my name and confuse my favorite authors! D: Help?
Thinking about finally writing a story..So I need a beta...and some writing advice.

Weird is good, strange is bad, and odd is when you don't know which to call someone. Weird is the same as different, which is the same as unique, then weird is good. If you are weird and proud of it, copy this onto your profile!
Starting off! I FRIGGIN LOVE THIS GUY! Not in the fangirl kinda way were I break into his house to steal his pillow or something like that. It's too much work! I just really love him! I think it's kinda creepy how our lives are similar too! No, I'm not jus saying that cause I want you to believe I'm like Shikamaru, you can believe what you want, I'm just saying.
I love clouds. My name IS Cloud Envy Shikamaru after all! I really didn't notice my obsession with clouds until my friend pointed it out to me. She's a Neji fan! She said "are you trying to be Shikamaru?" I was kinda confused at first, cause I really had no idea what she was talking about! I had been talking about how nice the clouds were that day and how I could get a better seat in class so I cloud look out the window. But I hadn't really though about it, when we had this convo Shikamaru and Temari were fight during the exams. So I could see why she would say that. But that's not the reason. I'm getting my room painted over with clouds so on bad days I don't have to go outside to look at clouds. My phones screen saver is clouds, you know, I'm not even gonna get into my clouds stuff!
I've got a...pleasantly plump friend! She's my number one confidant! Yea I think I spelled that wrong, but whatever! I don't wanna put my friends biz on the Internet though. But she's to me what Chouji is to Shikamaru, just put it that way.
As far as a friend like Ino...They're very similar. loud, annoying, bitchy. But I love my friend, Ino...not so much. Lol. OMG we even have Ino moments! Oh, if you see another Cloud Envy Shikamaru, it's gonna be me!
愛Okay I'm too lazy to finish. Maybe later...maybe...I doubt it
