Lupus and Sun

In Health, Health & Wellbeing, Lifestyle by Susan

I have struggled to deal with my own issues with LUPUS and I never really understood when I have been told ‘Always wear sun cream’ and ‘Be careful in the sun’.  I didn’t really know why or what the link was between ‘Lupus and Sun’ and the Doctors or Nurses have never really explained it?  

It was when my Sister-in-law questioned about the ‘sitting in the sun’ and ‘how did sun affect LUPUS’ that it really made me think.

The following information came up in a post from LUPUS UK website, so I thought I would ‘press it; and share the link straight to my blog to share this with you. 

I am on my Journey with this and trying to live my life and cope as best I can.  So understanding and reading up as much as I can does help.  It does tick some boxes and answer some questions and it may help some others.

I for one have stayed indoors (apart from the school run) during the day and enjoying a gentle walk in the evening, when the sun has almost set.
