Women have hormonal ups and downs every month, as is well known and has been the object of many jests towards us. For this reason itin
not surprising we don’t find it funny when something bothers us and our hormones are cited as the cause of all ourmaladys
. However hard it for us to admit, hormones do play an important role in our moods and energy. Whenbesides
the hormonal ups and downs, we suffer an illness like lupus, they are in addition, triggers of symptoms or a flare of this moody disease. We can’tcontroll
the hormonal changes in our bodies, but we can be attentive to them. When we know those days arecomming
we can rest more, keep ourselves in positive environments with little stress and not eatinflammtory
foods. While this will not change the emotional reactions, it does reduce other factors that could act in conjunction with our hormones to cause a flare.
