Book Report

lupus.cheezburger.com
Today's National Health Blog Post Month topic is to do a report on a book and tie it to my health or life.

If I were relating living with lupus to a book, it would have to be something surreal with a non-linear narrative, like Lewis Carrol's Alice's Adventures in Wonderland or Douglas Adams' The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy.

Lupus is like a world where the normal rules don't apply. There's always some unexpected surprise, something that makes no sense at all.

There's the day that begins like a normal day, and then brain fog means that everything goes wrong.  I can make my lunch happily and go on with my day, and not know until I come to make dinner that the stove has been on all afternoon, and there's a frypan with my lunch (that I must have forgotten to eat) burned on to it.

And another thing in common with Alice is the bottles with "eat me" on them.  Well, maybe not quite.  But I am constantly taking drugs that have been prescribed for me, and I don't always know what interesting side effects I may discover.

Of course, Alice woke up, and everything was the same as it had always been.  Unless there's a cure for lupus found, this strange dream/nightmare will go on and on for the rest of my life.
