I was diagnosed with Lupus over 5 years now. My Lupus has not been kind to me and everytime I get a crisis - it gets even worse to the point I can't walk or move due to severe pain. Last time i was hospitalized and got 80mm of Cortisone through a serum. When I got out, my doctors told me I had Nephritis... My treatment now is 15mm Prednisone, Cellcept 500 twice a day, and various antiinflamatories and pain drugs.

I have always been a supporter of marihuana use for this kind of cases, but I have also discovered that cocaine makes me feel full of energy and enables me to continue, more or less, with my normal life. So now, i do more cocaine than marihuana.:(

I know it is not a wise decision, but being 25 -studying, working and trying to have a social life aint easy when you have Lupus.

The question is, arent there safer ways to get a boost of energy???
