Do you know what I do in adversity? I go back to bed.
Lupus is bad enough. I don't need to push myself when it's flaring, because that would make it even worse.
And if I have something like, a head cold, and push myself through that, it could bring on a major flare.
Right now I have a head cold. I'm rather glad I had a flu shot, because I can tell you a head cold is quite bad enough.
So I'm going back to bed.
