I have a stomach bug. I knew I was going to get it the night before last when I came home to find two teenagers throwing up. We're a family that always shares these kinds of things.
What makes it worse for me is that suddenly all my joints are hurting again. My doctor says these things happen, a bug will cause lupus to flare. So, when I'm sick, I'll get sicker. Something about this seems incredibly unfair!
When I told her my lupus was fine while I had the flu, I had no joint pain at all, she was mystified. I said I'd enjoyed the flu and missed it now. She said, "No, you don't want the flu."
So, I've missed Curves again, having just been back once after the flu. I've had a day in bed asleep, and today, I'm still tired, but I have to do some actual work for work. (Easy, because I will lie in bed with the computer - as long as I stay awake, I'll be fine.
