I mentioned my visit with my rheumatologist the other day, talking about costs.
I didn't share my good news. Not only have I been feeling well most of the time lately, but my test results bear it out. There's a very small amount of gut inflammation, and my liver function's not perfect, but all of my lupus markers are negative.
So I have a plan to make the most of lupus being inactive. I'm going to work on my overall health as much as possible to be stronger and better able to cope when the next flare hits.
The first step is I'm exercising every day. It took a while to build up to it, but I'm doing the Care for Lupus Lupus Exercise Program every day. I'm also going for short walks with the dog on days when it doesn't rain.
Next, I'm going to try to get back in control of my diet.
