What I Want To Know

Day 3 of National Health Blog Post Month

"I Don't Know About This, But I'd Like To"

I love to learn and I can't stand not knowing something. My friends all know that the quickest way to drive me crazy is to confuse me and then not explain it to me.

Information is the most powerful tool in the world. With the right information, you can change the course of your life. Which is why when I have a new lupus symptom, I not only look up that symptom, but the organ responsible, how it works, and how to maintain that organ's health.

For arthritis in lupus, it can only affect joints with synovium. I learned that in Dr. Wallace's Lupus Book: A Guide for Patients and their Families.

After seeing my doctor and learning I have nodules on my thyroid, I looked up what the thyroid is responsible for, hypothyroidism, and how to keep the thyroid healthy.

What I Want To Know

What happens inside the body when it has a negative reaction to Ultraviolet Light? 
Why doesn't the malar rash go past the face's laugh lines? 
Why do I always feel better with lower humidities? How does humidity affect the body? 

Tell Me What You Want (What You Really, Really Want) To Know!

What do you really want to know about Lupus? Or do you know the answer to any of my questions? Have you read Dr. Wallace's book? Or do you know of any other awesome lupus books?
