Spring 2008 Issue Of Lupus Now Magazine Now Available

Good morning everyone.

Hope you had a great weekend. Mine was very nice. Hung out with some friends. Bought a watch. I never knew I had a thing for watches until this past year, and now I own about 5-6. Go figure!

Saw another movie (I know, big surprise there) that I recommend. It's Hitchcock's The Lady Vanishes, from 1938. I really enjoyed it. What's interesting is movies from the 1960s -- "Bunny Lake is Missing" -- and the 2005 Jodie Foster movie, "FlightPlan," seem to borrow ... sometimes heavily ... from "The Lady Vanishes." Def. worth checking out.

That's all from my end. I'm now turning the blogging reins over to Jenny Allan, the editor of Lupus Now magazine.

Until next time, Wick

Spring 2008 Issue of Lupus Now Magazine Now Available

Hi, I’m Jenny Allan, the editor of Lupus Now magazine. I'm very excited to be able to talk about the Spring 2008 issue.

Here are some of the articles we're featuring. First up is "Child's Play: Active Attitudes for Young People with Lupus." Read about parents of children with lupus, and how they find that balance between making sure their child is safe while still allowing their child to be given every opportunity to participate in the activities he/she enjoys.

We then continue our Clinical Trials series with an article called "More Power To You." Read how clinical trial participants are making a difference in lupus research.

There's an outstanding feature on cutaneous lupus called "From the Inside Out: The Many Faces of Cutaneous Lupus."

Our other regular columns have great information as well. "Ask the Experts" answers a few questions, including one about connective tissue disease. "Teen Talk" offers advice on how to make up missed classes, communicate with your teachers, and get the support you need. And "Ask Dr. Paul" gives some suggestions on how to talk with a spouse who always thinks they know what's best for you.

Lupus Now comes out three times a year -- Spring, Summer, and Fall -- and we don’t want you to miss a thing. For just $25, it’s a bargain, so go sign up now!
