Body Adjustments & Lupus

I have been experiencing more Lupus symptoms since my surgery last year.  A big part of my bodies adjustment has been my hair.  I had thicker but still thin hair when I was younger (permed, and colored it -it was the eighties).

Other things that are giving me fits are the skin changes.  I knew that things would sag, and droop, but with my Sjogren’s, my skin is having a hard time adjusting.  Although I still believe that for me surgery was the best decision.  Adjustments will always be made whether I want them to happen or not.
