|"What I want for my birthday?|
A day without pain."
For lupies, pain means it's just another normal day.
I'd like to think that if I had a day completely without pain, I'd spend it doing something fun, exciting, and completely out of my normal routine. But, really, I don't think I would.
Lupus has conditioned me to know that if I do too much on any one day, I will pay for it the next day. So if I had a pain-free day, I'd probably still not do anything much different - but I would definitely savour being able to stick to my normal routine without everything hurting. I wouldn't do anything out of the ordinary, but I would enjoy the ordinary much, much, more.
