Winter Blues
It may be the last month of winter - but in Brisbane August is known for cold winds. (They usually arrive in time for the Brisbane Exhibition - the state's biggest agricultural show - tens of thousands of people cramming into a small space sharing coughs and colds.)

The nights and mornings have been quite cold (at least cold in Queensland terms). On days I haven't had to leave home, I've stayed in pyjamas and warm dressing gown all day.

I've also found I've been having longer naps, and feeling less like doing things.

I put the question on the Sometimes, It Is Lupus Facebook Page, asking if other lupies were affected by the weather. There was an overwhelming response.  It seems that lots of people, like me, are affected by the extremes, either hot or cold can make us feel sick.

We all wanted to be somewhere the temperature stayed at a moderate level throughout the year.

Extremes of temperature can make lupies more tired or more sore, or both.
