Living with RA and Lupus

I've got my daddy's green eyes and my mother's immune system! Although I was symptomatic since 2008,I was diagnosed with RA in 2012 and had a total knee replacement in July that same year. Shortly after, my ANA test finally confirmed in also have Lupus. I had been tested twice a year prior to that because I was showing symptoms and strong family history. Since I am a designer and there is no intense manual labor involved, I can still work but fatigue and mobility conline to be challenging. I have a great Rheumy and the best husband in the world. I'm a very spiritual person and I draw strength from my faith and my very supportive husband. Praying for relief and a cure!
