"Life is too short. I can't control everything in my life. Trying to is exhausting!!" - member of MyLupusTeam
When first faced with a lupus diagnosis, a common fear is a lack of control over our health. How could our bodies betray us? How do we grab the reins back and fix the situation? Living with lupus forces us to recognize what we can and cannot control.
Members on MyLupusTeam have various strategies for letting go of control and fear, including:
1) using guided imagery to visualize letting go
2) opening up and trusting others
3) organizing or cleaning the house
4) reaching out for support from other members on MyLupusTeam
Here are recent conversations from members on MyLupusTeam:
