Being a California girl, I grew up loving summers at the beach, and loved being in the sun. But, as time wore on, I began getting ill after even short exposure to sunlight. Rashes would bloom over the exposed areas, and I began getting a red rashlike mask over the cheekbones. Then the nosebleeds and sore throats began popping up. My mouth would get red lesions, that made it difficult to chew or even swallow. The sore throats were so bad, they felt as if my entire trachea was filled with broken glass. The doctors prescribed xylocaine sprays to numb my throat, so I could just sip water.
Becky walked up the steps of Soviet High School. She had thought about what Sam suggested last night. She wondered if it could be Diane. She kept telling herself no, but she still wondered. She walked through the glass doors and turned right towards her locker. As she was opening it, Diane walked up.
I watched her proudly show him the beautiful goose roasting in the oven with the sad and wilted celery stalk dying in the middle of the bird, moments after our arrival. Maureen was delirious with glee. Bob cast me a look of bewilderment and I shrugged. I later whispered to him that I didn't think she knew how to stuff a goose but she was trying and that was the most important thing. Maureen pulled me aside a little later and lamented that she had found a Wild Rice Recipe to stuff the goose, but actually I should have called her about the stuffing weeks before and given her the heads up on this. She stared through the oven door at the celery stalk developing more compassion for the little lorn vegetable than was necessary.
Gabi: Well, my poor sister... I was probably 10 or 11 years old when I started doing make up on her, she was around 7 years-old. I still have pictures to black mail her. She was sort of a tomboy, so it was a painstaking effort to get her to cooperate
. But I could tell she liked to see herself in the mirror when I was finished.... and don't get me wrong... I was not by any means good! I think that's what really got me; she could see a different side of herself that she liked and I helped in the process.
Forget about the goth girl heavy eyed look. Be daring. Bring out the natural beauty of your eyes with a soft shimmery eye shadow and use eye liner sparingly. Use your mascara to define your lashes but separate the lashes immediately with a clean mascara brush or comb.
You can camouflage these flaws with the proper clothing! Ditch the shirts that bunch and gather around your midsection; they can add as much as 2- 3 inches to your waistline! Women with extra fat around the middle should favor shirts and dresses with designs that have a "slimming" effect. These would be vertical (never horizontal) stitches (never patterns), or strategically placed fabric which de-emphasize "pouches" and creates a desired streamlining illusion. Large belts and vests also create this effect.
In reference to my marriage, I withheld much of the issues I faced with pain and fatigue. And I made every effort to be as productive and active as possible. Was this fair? No, but it worked. So well, that when I truly was shot to the curb, down for the count David came through for me every time. Friends were treated the same way. Most people have an enormously difficult time even understanding what SLE or other autoimmune diseases do to you. As a society, we are geared towards going to the doctor, getting a pill or treatment, and voila! We are good to go. When friends ask, "What is the cure?", they cannot handle being told there is none.
Make some characters with freckles, others with sleepy eyes. Some with a bow on the ridge of the cup, some with a bandana tied around the top edge. When you combine different containers, assorted embellishments, and choices of plants the designs are endless!

When choosing wardrobe, there are three primary considerations which will not lead you astray: 1) The weather - what's the forecast? Are you going to be in or outdoors? A combination of both? Will you need a hat (sunny), or should you not wear a hat (wind)? The weather also can dictate the choice of fabric you wear. That wool jacket is probably not the answer for staying cool in August (unless you live in Australia).
