1. Stay out of the sun as much as possible;always wear sunscreen,hats and long sleeves when outside.

2. Read "The Lupus Book" by Dr.Daniel Wallace; it is wonderful for patients as well as family and friends.

3. Keep a log/journal with all your symptoms,questions and concerns and bring it with you to your doctor appointments.

4.Get plenty of rest and TRY not to over-do!!!

5. Keep a list of all your medications with you at all times;and perhaps get a medi-alert bracelet.

6. Try to eat a well balanced diet with good nutrients.

7. Call your local Lupus Foundation to get their newsletter.

8. Join "livingwithlupusforumotion.com" and read all of the old and new posts.....and ask questions to all of us here!!!!!

9. Try to get some type of moderate exercise in as much as your body can tolerate.

10. Most importantly......Remember getting a Lupus Dx is NOT a death sentence, but a challenge you CAN deal and live with!!!!
