Life with Lupus can be challenging. With symptoms coming and going to flare ups, the disease can cause normal feelings of like frustration, sadness and anger. Anxiety, panic attacks, and depression can be a side-effect of Lupus. According to The Johns Hopkins Lupus Center, approximately one-third of all people with lupus experience depression and anxiety. Why are the statistics so high?
On my blog, I will spotlight celebrities who suffer from Lupus and how they are dealing with it. Nick Cannon, 36, who is an actor, rapper, comedian, and entertainer was diagnosed in January 2012 with lupus kidney disease (also called lupus nephritis). Nick Cannon said he experienced symptoms of fatigue and swelling in his knees before a New Year’s vacation in Aspen that worsened while he was there.
In a previous post, I talked about how through medications I have gained a lot of weight. Throughout my entire life, I have always struggled with my weight. My weight problems are genetic. My father’s side of family has always been on the heavy side. My mother’s immediate side of the family, no one was obese. My mother struggled with her weight in her later years because of the prednisone, but she too never had weight issues in her younger years.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Obama AND Romney or Obama + Romney.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used.) For example, search for democrat OR republican to find results that refer to
Democrats and/or Republicans.
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
