The Horrifying Truth

It was a freezing cold morning, and I was lying in my nice warm bed, waiting for the coffee my son had offered to bring me.

He was taking an unusually long time, and I thought back to our conversation.

As well as offering me coffee, he'd asked me to cut his hair (he hasn't had his hair cut in about 12 years) and talked about the upcoming taekwando competition (neither of us has done taekwando since before his last haircut.)

The whole conversation had been an hallucination, or possibly a dream.

That's when the horrifying truth hit me. There was no coffee being made!

    Dear Iris- please know you're not alone. Many of us have had odd experiences with our Lupus involving cognitive issues. Hopefully it's just an isolated and temporary "mind-flare".
    Please see your rheumatologist if you need to.. there's always prednisone. And for the other issue, they make auto coffee makers! Love & light! JJ

    1. Thanks Julie. I've had a few hallucinations before and been to the specialist. It's all "just normal lupus" and nothing to worry about.


Thanks for being part of the conversation.
